This session will show you how you can create your own stop motion animated movies using cutout paper for characters and backgrounds. It is the oldest form of animation, but still used today in shows like Charlie and Lola, Blue’s Clues, and South Park. After some background information and watching a short example you’ll start with some paper, magazines, and a camera and learn the steps involved. You’ll be able to make a short movie which you can take home with you at the end of KidzMash. You’ll need to bring creativity and ideas for a story. A camera can be helpful, but it isn’t necessary. Althea Seilhan, an artist and member of Art Explorer Post 407, is co-presenting.
