You can animate anything you can see using stop motion techniques; drawings, toys, household objects and even real people. We recommend modelling clay as it can be shaped into anything you can imagine, but if you want to try something more ambitious there are no limitations!
One fantastic use for stop motion animation is to create a time lapse video, taking pictures of a slow moving scene or object over a long period of time to show how it changes. You can even make a stop motion animation project showing how you age every day or demonstrating how a plant grows.
If you’ve animated something unusual, why not submit it to our video gallery on YouTube to show other people?
