DDA-380 Stop-Motion Animation
This is an in-depth, yet introductory level, elective class in the art of stop motion animation. Students will explore a variety of hands-on techniques for creating motion picture art using the stop action photographic process: including animating clay, objects, and puppets. Some basic fabrication, lighting, and photographic skills will also be covered, as well as the fundamentals of using stop motion software. In-class exercises and production assignments are designed to build toward the creation of a short, stop motion animated, team project final film.
