digiStory Big/Little Stop-Motion Animation Workshop (continues Nov. 14-16)

November 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


DigiStory Academy invites moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, aunties–anyone with a close relationship to kids–to this workshop to learn how to create a fun, stop-motion animation. Working in a team of up to four kids and adults, participants in this intergenerational workshop will create an original story and animate using Claymation, LEGOs, etc.

This four-part workshop includes: 

Nov. 13:  Making Pictures Move

Participants begin with hands-on learning about “key framing” and “frame rates.” In this session they will construct a simple flipbook and view examples of animation at different frame rates.  Teams will also use the digiSTORY model to create an original story. From this they will create a storyboard and script.

Nov. 14:  Stop-Motion Tools

Participants will learn how to use a webcam and simple lighting with a laptop to capture their stop-motion frames.  Students will also learn how to use Zu3D animation software to create their stop-motion story. Students will use the features of the animation software to edit images, add sound effects or voiceovers and edit the video timeline.

Nov. 15:  Image Capture for Stop-Motion

Students will start photographing the progressive movements of the characters and props in their story at a frame rate of at least 15 frames per second (fps).

Nov. 16: Editing & Publishing Stop-Motion

Students will add title frames to the beginning of their stories and crawling credits at the end of their stories. When the stop-motion production piece is final, the student will publish the story to digiSTORY KC’s YouTube where links can be shared with family and friends.

This workshop is designed for kids 8 and older and adults of all ages.  Register at the following link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/biglittle-stop-motion-workshop-tickets-38474994745
