Stop-Motion Animation : Frame by Frame Film-Making with Puppets and Models, Paperback Book

Stop-Motion Animation : Frame by Frame Film-Making with Puppets and Models Paperback

Part of the Basics Animation series


Stop-motion Animation explores how all the elements of film-making - camera work, design, colour, lighting, editing, music and storytelling - come together in this unique art form.

With tips and suggestions to help you get the most out of your films, and with examples from some of the masters of the craft, Barry Purves shows how to make the most of the movement, characters and stories that typify stop-motion. With dozens of beautiful new examples from around the world, this new edition includes a project in each chapter, with pointers on finding a story and characters, developing a script and storyboard, constructing puppets and dealing with the practicalities of film-making.

These projects combine to lead you through the creation of your first one-minute stop-motion animation.
