Please note: This is an online class. Studio Resident, Matt Reynolds will cover the basics of character cut-out puppet construction and animation. He will demonstrate how to plan, design, and produce paper puppet pieces to then build into an anatomically functional puppet. After the puppet is constructed, he will show how to use a smartphone and the Stop Motion Studio App to create a DIY “downshooter” to use in order to animate the newly constructed puppet. With a few demonstration frames exemplifying how best to manipulate the paper puppet for animation, he will show how to playback the captured frames and export the footage. Participants need not have any prior experience with animation in order to participate.
