Introduction to Stop Motion Animation (In-Person)

Have you ever wondered about the magic behind films like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Shaun the Sheep, and Coraline? They were all created using a special technique called stop motion animation. In this engaging workshop, students will learn through demonstrations, behind-the-scenes footage, and hands-on activities how the same methods that studios employ on large-scale films like these, can be used to create stop motion animations at home and in the classroom.

What to Expect in a Workshop

Each one-hour workshop is a combination of lectures and hands-on activities. It is recommended no more than one class  per reservation to get the full benefits of a workshop, unless you have less than 15 students per class.

If you want your entire grade level to participate in a workshop or you have any questions about the workshops, dates, and times they are available, please contact the Education department at edu@utahfilmcenter.org.

For school districts not listed, workshop requests may be possible to arrange depending on travel distance and if multiple workshops are booked for the day.
