Jump into: Stop Motion (Ages 7–9)

Duration: 2 hours
Workshop7 - 9 Years

This is a two-hour program running at the Museums Discovery Centre.

Bring characters to life, and create a short stop motion film from start to finish! This animation technique creates an illusion of movement by changing and photographing an object at very small increments along a story line. Participants will use characters to create their own complete Stop Motion film, and develop skills that will translate to any Stop Motion software.

“Jump Into” workshops are a rapid introduction to a topic and can be built upon by attending our school holiday workshops. No parental supervision is required.

Please be sure to read our essential information for The Lab workshops.
