Setting the Scene!

Hello Movie Makers! We are continuing our journey into LEGO® Animation! Yesterday we learned the basics of our equipment and what Stop Motion is! Today we will be going over setting up our scene and putting what we learned into practice with our second challenge!

Under the Materials tab on the main Course Page, there are instructions on how to use the Stop Motion Studio app! Check that out if you need a refresher on how to use the app!

What to expect on Zoom: Today we will review our class from yesterday and check out the progress you all made on your Move a Brick movie! After showing and telling for a bit, we will discuss how to improve our LEGO® Movie scenes and sets! Our challenge for today is Build a Tower!
