🏗️ Materials Required: ✓ Smartphone or Tablet (Android or iOS) If you only have a computer, you could either run the android apps on your PC with BlueStacks: https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/3-free-ways-to-run-android-apps-on-your-pc Or you could try installing a Stop Motion program for Windows: https://fixthephoto.com/best-free-stop-motion-software.html Here is a link to Stop Motion Studio on the PC or Mac: https://www.cateater.com/ ✓ Lapse It or Lapse It Pro (to animate the student art) Stop Motion Studio is another program that works well: https://www.cateater.com/ 🏗️ Highly Recommended Materials: (These materials are what most students will use in the class. But they are not required for the class.) ✔️ Modeling/Oil-Based Clay (Modeling Clay is the best material for Stop Motion characters. But paper, Legos, toys - or even people - can also be used.) ✔️ Colored Paper ✔️ Scissors ✔️ Large Box - For Setting Up Background (This might not be necessary if your scene is located outdoors or in your home.) ✔️Scotch Tape and Glue 📎 Suggested Materials: ✔️ Smartphone Camera Stand (If you are using a Smartphone and it doesn’t have a kickstand case) ✔️ Legos ✔️ Toothpicks and paperclips ✔️ Tablecloth ✔️ Sculpting tools ✔️ Styrofoam, armature wire, and/or foil ✔️ Pipecleaners ✔️ Toys ✔️ Beads and/or Buttons ✔️ Scraps of cloth. Optional: ✔️ Flipaclip App Software (For Android or iOS) This animation software app has the ability to easily import Stop Motion videos and add some fun "rotoscoping" effects. Rotoscoping effects work great with Stopmotion! You can use it to make Lego or Clay characters fire lasers! Or add explosions! (I also do a class on adding Rotoscoping effects with Flipaclip: https://outschool.com/classes/making-stunning-animated-effects-in-movies-intro-to-rotoscoping-BsAiRsio?usid=fF9cKM18&signup=true&utm_campaign=share_activity_link) 📢 Please install Zoom on the same device as the Lapse It Software. That way the instructor will be able to see what the student is doing and be able to help the student if they are having any difficulties.
The learner's progress and comprehension skills are observed through informal assessment, in observation of their work on their claymation/stop-motion films.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
