A Man Who Ate Too Much with a Caterpillar

Animation is a filmmaking style that allows people of all ages to create whatever they can imagine. In the recent Stop Motion Animation program held at Studio 300, two patrons created their own fun videos using iStopmotion software, some paper, and their imaginations. Enjoy these two short animated films: “Exploding Man Eating Pizza” and “Caterpillar.”

 

Animation by Teens

Screen Shot 2014-07-17 at 6.01.29 PMThis time around it was our Teen patrons taking advantage of the Studio 300 Summer Animation Camp. Patrons in grades 7-12 learned about the animation art form and made several animated projects during the week-long camp. They experimented with different styles including pixilation, stop motion, and computer-based animation. Below are the results of their highly creative work:

Tween Animation Camp 2014

TweensAnimation 002The Fountaindale Public Library held its first Tweens Summer Animation Camp with help from Studio 300. Patrons in grades 4-6 learned the techniques and history of animation. During the week they explored different animation styles including pixilation, stop motion, and computer-based (using Stykz software). It’s always fun to share the hard work they did with the video below:

Animations Grades 3-5

These stop motion animations were created by young patrons in grades 3-5 during the latest Fountaindale Public Library Studio 300 Stop Motion Animation class. They conceived and animated these short videos using paper cutouts and iStopMotion animation software. See the results of their hard work below:

These stop motion animations were created by adult patrons in the Fountaindale Public Library Studio 300 Stop Motion Animation class. They conceived and animated these short videos using paper cutouts and iStopMotion animation software. One ambitious patron did some hand-drawn work, too.

Animated fun continues

This time around several Fountaindale Public Library adult patrons took their turn learning and experimenting with the Stykz animation software. The results of their first animated efforts are in the video below.

Learning animation is for ALL ages. Check out our calendar for upcoming animation classes using stop-motion and computer-based techniques.

Stop-motion ZOMBIES!

Studio 300 was invaded by Zombies! Stop-motion Zombies that is. Check out the video below from the Fountaindale Public Library Studio 300 Stop Motion Animation program created by patrons in grades 9-12.

This is just one of the many other stop motion projects that patrons of all ages have created. Through the animation classes, patrons of all ages learn the history, and technique using our equipment to create their own unique stop motion projects. We have seen patrons create fun and entertaining projects ranging from zombies to a sun-eating-alligator. Here are some more stop motion projects that younger age groups have created over the summer.
