Last week, Lawrence (Mel’s father) came to visit our classes to teach us about making stop motion movies. He showed us his camera and some excerpts of his amazing stop motion movies that he makes for YouTube. He was lovely, patient and answered all of our questions.
The main things that we learned were:
1) Watch how people move and try to make your figurines do the same. He called it “studying human movement”.
2) Music is one of the most important parts of a movie.
3) The more pictures you take the smoother the character appears to move in the movie. Lawrence takes thousands of photos and it takes him weeks to make a movie.
Below are some thank you letters that 1/2C wrote to Lawrence afterwards:
