Animation in the MAKESHOP

Each month, MAKESHOP decides on a theme to help us pick and develop activities. This month our theme is “time.”

Stop-motion animation takes time to experience.  It also lets you manipulate the timing of pictures, so we decided to do some stop-motion animation this month. Our stop-motion machine got a little bit of an upgrade.  The controls are still housed in a take-out container from the Big Red Room Cafe, but Greg, one of our exhibit technicians, updated the program and moved it to a better/newer computer.  I built a simple rig for the camera as well. I also created the movie embedded above using our new setup.  I hope our visitors and staff have as much fun playing around with animation as I do.
