Last month I spent a week teaching stop motion animation to three wonderfully creative girls. We had so, so, so much fun writing our story, creating a set, making clay characters, recording voice overs, and watching our ideas unfold into an animated short. At the end of our week together we had an evening screening of our video, Captured (along with a couple side-projects) for parents and friends. The girls stamped tickets at the door, served popcorn, candy, and drinks, and directed viewers to their seats. The screening was followed by a Q&A, where the young animators described their process and told stories about the week we spent together. Once again, I was impressed and inspired by the imagination, humor, cleverness, and artistry of kids!
…and now we proudly present Captured!
What is your favorite stop motion animation?
