Puppet Construction for Stop-Motion

6:30PM - 10:00PM
Sep 19 - Nov 21
3.50 CEUs

Carl Philip Paolino Producer, director, screenwriter, production designer

This course will explore techniques in stop-motion animation and each student will complete a fully articulated stop-motion animation puppet. After designing the puppet, students will construct a proper wire armature, sculpt the character in clay and develop a multiple piece stone mold. The puppet will then be cast in silicone, with special attention given to final detailing (eyes, clothing, hair, fur, feet, hands, face and mouth) that underscores the personality of the character.
