2021 Stop Motion Video Contest
The contest is closed. Winners will be announced soon. Prizes will be awarded in two age categories: grades 6-8 and grades 9-12.
What is Stop Motion?
Stop motion is a film making technique that makes inanimate objects appear to move on their own. This is accomplished by taking an image of a still object, moving the object a tiny bit, then taking another image. Repeat this process, play back the sequence in rapid progression, and the object appears to move fluidly across the screen.
