About This Class


In this class I’m going to show everything you need to know to start making some fun, stop motion animations right on your smartphone! I’ll show you how to set up your workspace with quick lighting and backdrops. Then we’ll jump into my favorite free stop motion app and animate using a few different methods. Along the way, you’ll learn some tips and tricks to animate efficiently.

Stop motion is a lot of fun and easier than you might think. With a little bit of planning and practice you can start making animations to share with friends.

So go grab all your inanimate objects and let’s animate!

Great class! Can't wait to get started with my own projects ☺
This was just what I was looking for. Really great tutorial, easy to follow, clear, nicely done, great for the first time animator. Thank you!!!
As someone who has never tried animation I thought Jamie's class was super informative, easy to follow and engaging. I can not wait to try my hand at stop motion. Thanks for the inspiration!
