Stop Motion Animation Stories: Story Writing
In this class we will apply everything we learned about stop motion to create our own stories. First, we will watch a very short film and talk about what choices the filmmaker makes to convey the story. We will go through the story writing process, taking into account the limitations of materials and time. Then we will do some story writing activities together.
Materials Needed: Paper – Writing utensils
Learning Goal: At the end of this class, children and parents will understand the basics of story writing for an animation and be able to create their own story.
Role of Parents: Parents should be the ones reigning in children’s ideas. They should be aware of available materials and how much time you have available and direct the child accordingly.
