As if visual communication isn't hard enough in 2D, we ask students to conceptualize in 3 dimensions through stop-motion animations. Students develop a character and simple storyline, then build and photograph the 3D props - one frame at a time. The frames come together in digital software to create the animation. The project exposes students to the principles of time and motion, and a potential animation career path.
