Stop Motion Animation Club

Grades 2-6 on Tuesdays with Ms. Condley

Have you ever wanted to be a filmmaker?  Would you like to design your own set and direct your own movie?  If so, the Stop Motion Animation Club may be for you!!!  Stop Motion is a technique used in animation to bring non-moving objects to life on screen.  This method, which is one of the oldest forms of filmmaking, is a technique where the filmmaker physically manipulates an object so that it appears to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a fast sequence (Wikipedia).   In the Vienna ES Stop Motion Animation Club, we will be using iPads to take photos and create short films over our eight sessions. Students will have access to various materials to design appropriate sets and characters for their movies.  Students should be comfortable working in groups and feel confident in taking on a team role.  This club will meet Tuesdays, from 3:35 PM – 4:35 PM, in the Art Room.
