I’m already learning more about stop motion animation.
My students and I tried stop motion with the map of the U.S. We had to move the tripod occasionally because we needed to see while we copied the projected states onto the board.
We drew circles around the legs of the tripod so we could put it back in precisely the same spot. Now, when watching the video, you can see that we really weren’t able to be precise.
With the next attempt, drawing Einstein, I kept the camera stationary, so it looks better. Here are my first two attempts at stop motion animation:
The Einstein video has less motion, but the lighting is all over the place. I’ll have to pay attention to lighting next time.
What’s my next step?
