This is a hands on Makerspace for patrons to learn stop-motion animation. As a group, we will come up with a story, create characters, voices and sound effects and use the stop-motion process (filming and editing) to bring it all to life. At the end of each session, the short films will be shared on YouTube. Join us for Summer at the Library fun!
