Filming and Stop Motion animation

Filming and stop motion animation have proved very popular with our members. We are in the process of producing a video “Marty goes line dancing” which has involved parents and youngsters alike and proves that old adage “The kids are alright, but never work with robots!”

In the meantime, we have invested in lights and editing software, dabbled in special effects, and found ways of making costumes for robots which have a face and legs but no bodies!

We have been learning with YouTube tutorials as we have no expert in this area. We are aiming to recruit one as soon as we can find a willing volunteer. So we’ve made every mistake in the book, but learned a lot.

We have stickbots and playdough for stop motion animation and these are very popular starters for learning the skills (and patience!).
