MODULE II – Specialization in stop motion

The second module of specialization in which, in a practical manner, through the use of characters from stop-motion animation and its various techniques, the subject of animation is studied more deeply.

There will be theoretical/practical workshops, with viewing of notable examples of each technique, during which students will have to test the principles of animation and apply them to the different techniques of stop motion, doing exercises and tutored practical work using each of the techniques and sub-techniques.
