In blob animation students have a chance to explore the principles of 3D animation using simple clay shapes. The field trip takes place in our Animation Studio where students are guided through the process of making stop-motion animation. They are introduced to the vocabulary and process of filmmaking as they work collaboratively to plan, direct, and animate a short film starring their clay blob characters. Teachers will be able to take home the finished films via DVD or USB.
