Stop Motion Animation is a technique used in animation to bring static objects to life on screen. This is done by moving the object in increments while filming a frame per increment. We will be animating 12 pictures per frame, which means 1 second of animation contains 12 pictures. When all the frames are played in sequence it shows movement. Clay figures, puppets and miniatures are often used in stop motion animation as they can be handled and repositioned easily. Kids stop motion animation is great fun for all the family.
