The Trip To ACMI Movie Studios – Scott

The trip to ACMI was the most fun I have had because I haven’t done stop motion before. When we arrived we made plasticine characters using pipe cleaners as the skeleton of the model to give it strength. We had to work in groups of four on our movies to help us finish it faster. Our group’s movie was called “The Super Twins”. We had students from Yuille Park and Wendouree.photo

The computers we used were Apple Macs with iStopMotion software. We also added music and sound FX to our film.

The process was

  1. plan our story,
  2. build the set,
  3. make the characters
  4. take 3 photos
  5. make small moves
  6. take more photos
  7. make small moves
  8. keep going until enough photos have been take for 30 seconds of film

We also visited Screen Worlds at lunchtime. It was really fun to see an old Atari in real life.
