In the project financed by Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI), we have arranged 7 stop-motion animation workshops for refugee children (5 -11 ages) at Bjørnebekk from September to December 2016.
Stop motion animation is a film making technique that makes inanimate objects appear to move on their own. It is one of the simplest, most fun animation techniques.
Mix equal parts digital camera, computer, and imagination (you’ve got all three), and you’re on your way.
To make it work, you place an object in front of a camera and snap a photo. You then move the object a tiny bit and snap another photo. Repeat this process twenty to ten thousand times, play back the sequence in rapid progression, and the object appears to move fluidly across the screen.
It helps children to improve their visual, collaboration, planning and creative skills.
You can check some of the films produced by children on our Youtube page.
