Stop Motion Animation
Motion from Stillness
What is stop motion animation?
What do you need to make your own?
To get started...
- A camera
- A tripod, or some other way to keep your shots steady
- Actors or Objects (for your characters!)
- Editing software, or a stop motion app
Pixilation is a stop motion technique that uses live actors. The actors have to stand very still in between each shot, only moving a tiny bit at a time to create the illusion of motion. This technique allows you to create cool effects- for example, you can make it look like your friend is flying through the air or sliding along the floor on their belly.
