A Beginners guide to making a stop motion animation

Our work experience student, Adam Jones takes you through the basics of making a stop motion film in his own stop motion film he’s made right here in the Cut Films office. Check it out.

“This video is a two minute, step by step tutorial on the basics of making a stop motion animation. In the video, I cover the topics of ‘Cameras’, ‘Lighting’, ‘Figures’ and ‘Animation’ in detail yet keep the tutorial simple for easy understanding. I talk about how it is best not to have the scene under natural light due to inconsistencies in the sky (such as clouds moving in front of the sun randomly, causing the scene to go dark), and also explain the different methods of editing the animation together briefly.”
