Create your own movie using stop-motion animation! Working in small groups, you'll construct 3-D characters and sets with found objects and materials such as wire, wood, fabric, newspapers, and recycled household objects. Using a video camera you'll animate your story one frame at a time. When the shooting is done, record sound effects, music, and voices for an original soundtrack. Show off your final productions to friends and family on YouTube.
