What you will do
2.5 hour workshop
This evening workshop is designed to teach you the basics of lip-synching in stop-motion animation.
Using a plasticine puppet you will learn how to create the illusion that your puppet is speaking and how to create expressions that make the viewer feel as though your puppet is thinking.
During this workshop, you will learn how to create a puppet from plasticine and lip-synch using sculpting tools to cut out different shapes to create words.
In addition to this, you will also learn the basics of Dragon Frame, which is essential stop-motion software where you can playback your footage and see your puppet move. It will also allow you to make amends along the way as you can track the flow of movement as you are working.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.
