Stop-Motion Animation with Sean Pecknold and Adi Goodrich at Sean & Adi's Studio

Sold out

Curious about how stop-motion animation works, and itching to create your own animated project? Under the lead of acclaimed director Sean Pecknold and set designer Adi Goodrich, learn the fundamentals of this classic animation technique, from coming up with an idea, to creating a storyboard, and execution using an antique stop-motion animation equipment. Sean and Adi will share examples of their work and take you through their own idea to execution process. Using clay, paper, and more, students will learn to animate a 15 second project from start to finish. The final project will be fit for distribution to Instagram, but other modes such as Vimeo and YouTube will also be introduced. Perfect for kids so bring them along. If you're bringing them, you must purchase tickets for them as well.

And a big thank you to Adi Goodrich for your kind energy and sweet words, and to Ted Poketo for always being so welcoming and open to questions."
