Animation Masterclass

In this Second Level Animation Masterclass, we learn and experiment with every skill needed to create and screen an animation short:

  1. First, we explore a number of stop-motion animation genres.
  2. Next, we create a storyboard of a simple plot to last no longer than 30 seconds.
  3. Then, we create or source the characters for our 'short'.
  4. After that, we design our setting and make our 'set'.
  5. Next, we improvise the action and decide which types of 'shots' to use.
  6. Then we photograph our animation.
  7. After that we upload the photos and edit the animation (Using Windows Movie Maker).
  8. Importantly, we create our own soundtrack (using apple's garageband) so we don't break musical copyright laws.
  9. Then the soundtrack is added along with titles and credits.
  10. Finally, the project is exported to a movie file (.wmv) to be screened on our website.
