Introduction to Stop Motion:

 This course is aimed at beginner to intermediate photographers who have a basic understanding of how to use their camera in manual mode. 

In this course photographers will learn how to plan, shoot, and edit a stop motion.  They will learn what the different frame rates will do to the finished stop motion as well as how to create the stop motion itself. 

This course will not be one where the photographers will be creating a stop motion as well, but will get to participate in the creation of one and learn all the secrets to making amazing stop motion.

What to Bring
Photographers should bring with them something to take a lot of notes. 

Please bring a packed lunch as there are no local facilities – although there is a pub which is a 10 minute drive away.
