Stop Motion films

Have a go at making your own Stop Motion animation films like some of us had a go at in Year 3!

The app we used was called Stop Motion Studio.

Remember to choose a main character or a few characters - this could be lego people, animals, toys or any kind of figures.

Take a picture of your characters and hold the camera still, move your characters a little bit then take another photo. Keep doing this until you have enough photos so it looks like your characters are moving!

You can then add sound effects and voices - you might need to take more photos to fill up the space.

Enjoy making films and let your teachers know when you have finished. We will see if there is a way of sharing these, if not we can find time when we are back in school to share your films!
