Workshop Stop-motion

Everything is possible in animation films. Flying dogs, walking eggs, talking robots: whatever you can come up with. You can easily make a stop-motion animation film yourself. Get started with our Stop-motion workshop and make your own animation film in three lessons.

What is animation?

Animation means bringing something to life which does not move, and that can be done in various ways. The best known is the cartoon - also known as 2D animation. With this type of animation, everything is flat and you don't see any depth. You do see depth in 3D animations. These animations are usually created with the computer, such as Toy Story. And real objects move in a stop-motion animation. That's what this Stop-motion workshop is all about.

Workshop

Based on the three lessons (below) you make up a story, characters, build a movie set and add sound and music. And then - tadaaa - your own movie is ready.
