Bring your stories to life when you combine motion and storytelling techniques through animation! This fun and relevant workshop explores the best of both worlds. At the beginning of this interactive week we produce our own movie using the playful, fun art of stop motion animation. Frame by frame, students create unique sets and characters using a variety of artistic mediums such as Sculpey Clay, wire, paper, felt, markers and cardboard. We then go on to examine the emerging eld of interactive animation. Learn how to write and use code to create digital animations that react to their surroundings.
