It’s Alive! Stop-Motion at West Rutland

Written by Eric Bird

After a short stop-motion clip was included in one of my teacher’s parent night presentation, all three classes unanimously agreed that they wanted to learn how to create animation next. We used digital cameras, Play Doh, and a movie maker program to create scenes that would come alive. An hour and fifteen minutes for each class was not enough for the complete project, as the students had way too much fun creating their sprites, backdrops, and creative action, but we completed the molding, picture sequences, and camera transfer. Next time, we will import into the movie maker program and add sound to make each clip come alive! The teachers already have science and math projects in mind.
