How to put your animation career in motion? By first setting type into motion.

Stop-motion is perhaps the most basic form of animation and moving image, with sequential frames literally put together in order to create a sense of movement. Using typography created from various material, we will create an ~10 second stop motion piece on a topic introduced at the workshop. 
Students will begin with coming up with an idea for their narrative, and then move on to planning details (materials, timing, lighting etc) via a story board. The second half of the workshop will focus on execution with a photoshoot and putting together of the series of photos to create the animation.
