Stop Motion Animation: With Humans!

July 31, 2023 @ 9:00 am12:00 pm EDT


Tech Arts for Youth Session 4A

July 31 – August 4

Monday – Friday

9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Open to all levels.

Ages 11-15

Stop motion animation is often used to animate things like cut paper, clay figures, puppets, and ordinary objects at a miniature scale. In this workshop, students will instead learn how to use stop motion techniques with real live human actors, and full-scale objects. The results are often surreal, or other worldly, and there is infinite space for experimentation with practical visual effects. We will work together to develop characters and stories, and then build a set in our studio. Students will learn to photograph scenes and edit their animations, and then add sound effects and music. Everyone will leave class with a finished short film!

Class limited to 8 participants.
Contact Caroline at or (716) 884-7172 with any questions!

Instructor: Salem Browning
