    Come learn how to use Stop-Motion software to make your own adventure tale. Plan your story and then create the characters, props and scenes using various mediums including recycled materials and 3D pens. Bring home what you create and share your film with your friends. If you've been in this class before, come again and we will go deeper into editing. Students should bring a tablet, ipad, or cell phone for the stop motion filming. Extra ipads will be available. Any props (toys, toy furniture, etc.) that they would want to use in their films may also be brought. We will be making props and characters as well.
