Stop Motion

Task

Make a stop motion film with a St Georges Day theme. You could use action figures, toys, models or construction kits such as Lego.

Stop Motion films are created by taking tens to thousands of pictures of a model that has been moved slightly each time. When the photos are stitched together and played quickly, it gives the appearance that the model is moving on it’s own.

It works best with a fixed background setting and the moving parts in the foreground. You will need a secure place to fix the camera to ensure it stays in the same place for each picture.

Resources
  • Camera
  • Models to film – Toys, Lego, Plasticene, etc
