Stop motion animation is a cinematic process or technique that is used to make static objects appear as if they were moving. This technique is most commonly used in claymation and puppet based animation. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames in played as a continuous sequence. I used this technique and created a claymation about a snail. I took over 200 photos for 17 seconds worth of film. It is a very tedious process and it is time consuming. Before I started to create my animation, I made a story board where I planned out the story. The outcome was successful and I am very happy with my animation.
