Brickfilms Stop-Motion Animation

LEGGO MY LEGO!

Stop-motion animation is a cinematic technique used to make static objects appear as if they are moving. It is commonly used in claymation and puppet-based animation but may incorporate a wide variety of manipulated objects including LEGO characters (these are known as Brickfilms). This year's stop-motion animation workshop will utilize LEGO characters and building blocks as the protaganists and backgrounds for a short animated video.

Following the original "flip-book" concept, the process involves positioning the objects and taking a still photograph, then re-positioning and taking a photo, repeatedly. When the still photos are edited together in rapid sequence, they produce the illusion of motion due to the optical illusion known as persistence of vision, whereby multiple discrete images blend into a single image in the human mind.

The completed films willl be shown at the Movie Camp Finale on Saturday, July 29. The tuition for Brickfilms Stop-Motion Animation is $60. Go to "At a Glance" for dates and times, location, and other information. Brickfilms teams will be led by Greg Gray and Wes Obrigewitsch.
