Stop Motion Animation

Year 3 have been animators this week! They planned their animations carefully on a storyboard and then created characters and models out of plasticine and playdough. They had to show resilience and teamwork when creating the animations, just like the makers of films such as, Wallace & Gromit and Early Man. Each movement had to be very slow and precise - the children had to be very patient!


Below are photographs of the planning process and the animations by 3 Rennie Mackintosh. You can have a go at making your own animation at home by downloading the app on your iPad - "Stop Motion Studio" 


Comment below with what you enjoyed.
