Frequently Asked Questions!
Do we need to have a smart phone or tablet?
No! You can use a computer but you will need a digital camera separate from your laptop/desktop camera. We will be taking photographs of our work and making it “come to life”!
Is a smart phone or tablet preferred?
Yes! We will be using an app called “the stop motion app” to help you get a gauge of how to animate! It gives very easy access. The app is free!
Can I participate if I don’t have those tools?
Yes! We will focus your lessons on a type of animation called “additive animation”, and I will help you throughout the entire process!
