1 file available upon enrollmentStudents will need a second device. They will need to watch on one device and use the other device to take photos for their stop motion video. Students will need a charged device; some stand to hold their device still not to shake. Students will need some materials they would like to use in their videos, such as animals, building blocks, miniature people, etc. Blue and/or green paper (construction paper) or fabric (shirt/etc.). Important Information: This class is much easier for students when using a second device. The easiest device is an iPad or iPhone. However, if your child is taking the class with a computer and is trying to use the Stop Motion on that same device, they will need another camera.

Students will be required to have a stop motion studio pro app to complete this class. The pro version has all the necessary tools to complete the activities.
