Students are introduced to video as an artistic and visual language through stop-motion animation. They learn about stop-motion and then view/analyze a few examples. They then craft an idea for their own animation, working either individually or in small groups. Students experiment with using the stop-motion technique to create a simple two-dimensional and/or three-dimensional animation that communicates an idea or story.
