Paper Power: Stop-Motion Animation


This camp was all about the potential of paper as an art tool. I had never done Stop-Motion Animation (SMA) before and I was terrified that we wouldn't finish on time. BUT I did not know that I was working with one of the best groups of 8-10 year olds around. ^_^


We used a hole in the table to film through onto the floor. It worked great!






We spent the first day designing movable characters with brass brads and paper. They also made stationary background characters and scenery and figured out a script. 







Planning was so important! We had to plan for at least 1 hour before we were allowed to start working.
