Stop motion cooking is an incredibly popular sub-genre of stop motion animation.
One of the classic shots you see in these films are objects being cut to become ingredients.
There are many ways you can do this, and I believe there is a technique or method for every skill level - in this class I explore three of these.
This class is great for bners (with some knowledge), hobbyists or animators already working in stop motion. The class doesn't teach stop motion set-up, so whatever level you are at there is an expectation of knowing how to set up your camera, lights and other equipment before taking this class.
The main learning you will experience is in the methods of how to approach different cuts with stop motion animation. You can apply this learning to your own preferred method of creation.
BONUS: I will also be teaching a really easy motion blur technique too.
In this course you will learn:
How to animate a basic stop motion cut
How to animate an intermediate stop motion cut
How to animate an advanced stop motion cut
How to use Photoshop to composite (for the advanced cut)
Adding motion blur to a knife swish, with tin foil
Plus other tips and advice
You will be creating:
A stop motion cut of your own, it could be anything, the only limits are your own imagination and the objects you can find.
You will need:
A DSLR (that is Dragonframe compatible) or a smartphone. A full list of Dragonframe compatible cameras can be found here:
A form of stop motion capture software. I will be using Dragonframe 4 (30-day FREE trial is fine) or you can use the Stop Motion Studio (a free app you can on your smartphone)
Object(s) to animate. This can be anything you have lying around at home
Some clay or plasticine
A pair of scissors
A knife or other cutting implement
Some sticky tack
Some tin foil
Video editing software like Prre Pro
Photo editing software like Photoshop
