Take your first steps into the world of stop motion in this class where you will design, armature and build-up a puppet capable of full stop motion animation. You will learn the use of different materials that go into the creation of puppets, including wire, foam, liquid latex, epoxy resin and acrylic paint, etc. We will also discuss the varying styles of puppets as seen in films and tv (IE: “Pinocchio,” “Wallace and Gromit,” “Ted Lasso Christmas Special,” and “Robot Chicken.”) and introduce the idea of more complex puppets builds for future 201 classes. (Animation not taught in this class)
