For today's Learning Quest we are going to do something that is far easier to do at home than it is at school, because you'll need a tablet device or smart phone. You are going to have a go at making your own stop-motion animation. First of all ask an adult to download a simple stop-motion app for the device. Then use the video below to help you learn the key tips for getting starting with stop-motion animation.
Here's the main things to remember.
1. Find a clear, flat space for you to take your pictures.
2. Set up your tablet/ smart phone in a place that it won't move. A tripod would be ideal, but if you don't have one then mark where it is set-up before you start. Once you've started taking photos, don't move it until you're done!
3. Only move the objects/ characters small amounts for each photo.
4. Once you're ready to start, make sure you think about what you're going to make happen before you start.
