Make Your Artwork Move and Come to Life!

Stop Motion animation is where a series of pictures are combined to make a moving image making for a great introduction into video for artists of all backgrounds. All of the components of stop motion animation will be covered through use of various hands-on tools including tracing paper, marker boards, paints, and clay. The original artwork created with these mediums will be captured live with a camera and put into interactive softwares like DragonFrame and iMotion HD. After the frames have been captured the class will use basic video and audio editing techniques to create a finished animated video! As with all Industries workshops, this is open to all ages.

During the workshop we’ll be looking at the basics of Video Editing, Green Screen, and Audio Production.

The following softwares will be introduced:

*Dragon Frame (animation)
*Adobe Premiere (video)
*Reaper (audio)
*Photoshop (photogrpahy)
*After Effects (motion graphics)

The AS220 Media Arts lab is equipped with Apple computers and the entire Adobe Creative Cloud suite. You are welcome to bring your own computer as long as you have the above softwares. Reaper is free, Dragonframe has a demo version, and the Adobe products all have 30-day trials.
