Stop Motion Animation Classes

Members are now hard at work, filming their own stop motion animation projects for the Boys & Girls Club Digital Arts program.

For this project, our elementary and middle school members learned to create short animated movies with toys and common household objects by using a filming technique known as "stop motion" animation. Similar to claymation, this method involves carefully positioning your props and photographing them, moving them by small increments between frames. GIMP, a free, open source image editing program, is then used to combine the series of pictures into a video file. Members learned to operate a digital camera, edit images, and create awesome animated .gifs!
