In this hands-on course, you’ll learn fundamental stop-motion animation techniques using a variety of mediums, such as claymation and cut-outs. Filmmakers seeking to make more exciting credit sequences can use the skills taught in this class to give their productions more creative flair. We’ll cover frame-rate, movement and timing using the industry standard software Dragonframe.
This class makes you an Animation Producer, meaning that you can check out Open Signal’s animation kits for free, and submit videos to our cable channels.
