Focus: Learn to animate using ‘stop motion’ techniques.

What will you do? Stop motion is the core concept of animation, and goes all the way back to the original Disney cartoons. Starting with Walt Disney’s first animation, you will go on to create an amazing animation based on any topic of your choosing – your imagination will be the only limit! See below for more information.
