    Ever wondered what is Stop Motion Animation? Join our lessons and learn basic principles and techniques!

    The Stop Motion Animation is an animated filmmaking technique, a sequence of individually photographed images that capture the objects in different positions, afterwards they will be put to play at a fast tempo which creates the illusion of motion. The Stop Motion can be done simple by using a tablet or mobile phone camera.

    Stop Motion Animation lessons take place at the p^2 multispace every Tuesday from 16:30 to 17:30.
