A two day class (Tuesday and Wednesday) to learn the techniques of stop motion animation and the art of storytelling in a small space.

Tuesday you will develop your story (either in teams or individually) and plan it out. Then begin to shoot your vision with our cameras attached to our IMacs. Then, use IMovie to edit your masterpiece. And in the meantime, for inspiration, watch these two stop motion animated films – they are just amazing. First, the world's smallest animated movie shot with a Nokia cell phone: and, Gulp, the world's largest stop-motion animation set, shot on a Nokia cell phone: Enjoy.
