Girls Work with Stop Motion!

On Saturday we had a very productive workshop. The girls got the opportunity to work with Synes Elischka, a film director from Austria who has previously worked with San Telmo Productions. Synes works with stop motion animation and goes around the world teaching workshops on the subject. Stop motion is an animation technique that makes a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own by moving the object in small increments between individually shot frames. We started the workshop practicing the technique using objects and images, but we progressed to using people. The great thing about stop motion is the fact that it can be done with a simple point and shoot camera, meaning it is more easily accessible to the girls. Additionally, you don't need a lot of money to make a film because you can use common objects found around the house. In fifteen minutes, we were able to make a 30 second short. It was a very successful workshop in which the girls were able to learn a skill that will not only let them have fun but will also hopefully add to their future as filmmakers.
