This class is for anyone who has ever been interested in making stop motion video but wasn't sure where to begin. All you need is an idea, any smart phone or tablet, and the app Stop Motion Studio, which is available for iOS and android.

This was explained well and so easy to understand! I can't wait to make my first stop motion video.
Just like the title says, yes, it does look really easy to do. Seeing how easy it is to create a stop motion animation takes a lot of stress and pressure off. Thank you April for this class!
A very thorough and well explained introduction to stop motion.
