Powerful Messages Come Alive with Stop Motion Animation

Everyone has a story. The challenge is choosing how to bring it to life and who to share it with.

Our Learning Series on Stop Motion Animation started today.  Besides the technical “how to’s”, we discussed how to create voice, mood and motion.  For example, what role does background music play in setting the tone, suspenseful moments, how do we use ‘voice’ in powerful ways, how do we give emotion to inanimate objects…
And it’s always about the story – what message do you wish to explore and communicate?
