Technical Details!

Hello Movie Makers! We are continuing our journey into LEGO® Animation! Yesterday we learned how to set up our scene and achieve the best camera angle for our movie! Today we will be going over some more technical details so our movies are as excellent as we desire, putting those into practice with our third 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 Build a Tower movie!
