Stop Motion Animation Workshop

During the school holidays we hosted a stop motion animation workshop for kids. The goal was simple, show some kids how to use play-dough and some clever phone/tablet apps to tell awesome stories but the most interesting bit was that we had our youngest “workshop leaders” running the show.IMG_20160722_151052

Ben and Zak, two young makers with a couple of stop motion animations under their belt already worked with around eight kids to bring their ideas to life using play-dough. There were stories about caterpillar-eating spiders, friendly penguins and even a Star Wars – Pirates of the Caribean mash up with the Kraken eating a Tie Fighter!

The app they used was “Stop Motion Studio” which is available for both Apple and Android devices
