Classroom Creative: Stop-Motion Animation

Aug 24, 2020 | class story

A CLASS STORY by MR. HORSFALL’S & MR. LETCHER’S 5/6 CLASS

Over the past few weeks students have been learning the skills and techniques of making stop motion animation video clips and movies.

Stop motion is a film technique where a series of still photos are taken with objects and characters that are slowly being moved in each photo. When all of these photos are stitched together and cycled through at a fast rate, it creates the illusion of animation.

This has been done through using the application ‘Stop Motion Studio’ on iPads.

Throughout lessons, students have been learning the fundamentals of movie making, such as using pauses for effect, camera positioning, setting a scene and using voice overs for narration and characters. This has been mixed with learning about specific tools that can help with this in the application, such as adjusting frame rates, using green screens, zooming in and out, adding text and making title screens.

There are many different ways that stop motion can be used. These include:

  • Claymation (like the TV show Gumby or Wallace and Gromit)
  • Object Motion
  • Cut out Motion
  • Pixilation
  • Time-lapse

Students have had the chance to make many short video clips using everything that has been talked about above. Here are some examples of what they have done:

If you have any interest in trying this at home by yourself or with your children, there is a free version of the app that can be downloaded.

For further information on what these are, check out the clip in the link below:
