Color, Emotion, and Illusion

Learn how to create successful illusions in stop-motion animation. Facilitators will lead discussion, illustrated by specific professional stop-motion animation shorts, on how lighting and color are used to invoke specific moods, and how the type of movement given to animated objects can aid the illusion of their weight and texture. Work in small groups to complete short exercises on using color to create mood and motion to further illusion. Make a stop motion animated short using these techniques and provided program materials.

Outreach programs are designed for students in grades 3-12. The cost of one 60 minute program is $160, but multiple programs are offered at a discounted rate – $140 for each additional program.
