Workshop Description
In this workshop we will create short stop-motion animations using digital still cameras and digital video cameras.  We will use free software programs that students will be able to download and continue to use at home after the workshops.  Stop-motion is a style of animation that is comprised of many still images strung together like a flipbook.  Students can work individually or in groups to create short videos with a variety of provided props or things they brought from home. During this workshop, we will learn how to: Capture the images, import to the computer, create the animation a variety of ways, add audio, and post the finished video on the web. No experience with video is necessary.  Students should bring their own still cameras to learn how to set them for making animations.
