Animation ALIVE!

Learn Stop-Motion Animation! Make movies with a webcam or mobile device!

Mad Dog Movies goes on the road with the  ANIMATION ALIVE set-up.

Our demonstrations include two animation stations. The first uses a top-down shooting rig, made for use with a camera phone and animation app STOP MOTION STUDIO. The other is a table-top set, with webcam and Aardman’s ANIMATE-IT software running on PC.

Participants get the opportunity to learn stop-motion animation and see their movies projected.
