Stop Motion Workshop - Sept 23
Join us for an intro to stop-motion animation with Lori of Quietly Courageous Studios!
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your very own stop motion videos using only your smartphone?
In this workshop, stop motion artist Lori Fimoff will walk you through the entire process, from developing concepts to shooting to editing your final videos!
Perfect for beginners, this class will teach you the basics of stop motion and will even get into some more advanced techniques. You’ll shoot 3 guided videos from start to finish and then have the remaining time to unleash your creativity while you practice your new skills.
This workshop is great for product photographers and small business owners looking to up their content game and anyone who wants to learn a new skill just for fun! You’ll leave feeling confident about creating stop-motion videos on your own moving forward. You'll learn:
- Lori's best tips to get set up for stop motion success
- How to tell a story by shooting your video backwards (this is a sneaky trick that works so well!)
- What replacement animation is and when to use it
*Tripods and all other materials will be available for use during class. All you'll need is your fully-charged smartphone! We’ll be using the Stop Motion Studio app (it’s free!), so feel free to download it before class. And if you have something specific you’d like to animate, you’re welcome to bring it along!
