Workshop Teaching Strategy
I have created Flash based tutorials for all the projects we will cover. This method of teaching/learning might be new to you but I think you may find it extremely powerful once you get into it. By putting all my lessons into this web site you have control of your learning. You can go as fast or slow as your learning style requires. You can stop the lesson at any time and practice the techniques or ask me for more clarification. As you watch the tutorial, make sure to pause and practice the technique using the sample files. Once you complete a project, look at the agenda, and if you are ahead of schedule take the time to practice what you just learned to ensure that you understand the concept.

Name Project

We are going to start with a simple straight forward project just to get you familiar with the stop motion animation process and equipment.

In this project you are going to create a short animation using your first name and last initial. You will then be able to reuse this in all your projects.
