Students Will learn how to: 1. Manually set up the program settings based on their lighting and depth of field. 2. Set the stage for their movie scene props and figures. 3. Efficient shooting practices. 4. Post production editing, such as voice overs and adding graphics. 5. Ready your movie to wow your friends.
1 file available upon enrollmentWe will be using the application Stop Motion Studio Pro that can be purchased for $4.99 in your mobil device's App Store. Please have it purchased and loaded on their device prior to class starting. Please have your student bring at least one toy or figurine that they would like to have come alive as well as any props they would like to include.
Your student will not be required to show their filming progress. But, the more they participate and ask questions the more capable they will be post-class to continue making their films. Their excitement to continue filming that you see after the class will be the best way to measure their success in the classroom.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
