Stop Animation

Don't forget to log your progress every day.  

Artifacts:  You will create one or more videos during your time.  You should work for the entire 8 days.  If you have completed filming, you could continue to work on editing for the video to add items like an introduction.  
Step 1

View the following stop animation videos and analyze them for content, style, and tech issues.  

Things to Know:

  • I have the book Tricky Video which you can use to get ideas for your project.  
  • I have three cameras available that you can use.  Try to keep the same camera for the entire project.
  • It is best to have all your materials ready and try to take your pictures on the same day.
  • We have two tripods available.
  • We can download Windows Movie Maker to your computer to put the video together.  
  • The more pictures you take with smaller movements, the better your video will be.  

Create your videos.  Make sure to save often to reduce loss due to computers freezing.  Make sure to save videos to both the I: drive and the jump drive.
