Stop Motion Animation Curriculum: Stories in Motion

Posted on Jun 18, 2014 by Adobe Youth Voices Last updated on Jun 8, 2017


Youth media in action

In this 8-session curriculum, youth use video editing software, such as Adobe Premiere Elements, to create a stop motion animation. Stop motion animation promotes creativity by encouraging young people to imagine a world in which they can bring everyday objects to life. Young people build technical skills while crafting messages that make a lasting impact.

Educators will find facilitation tips and strategies in this and in other resources from the collection. Learn to help students utilize media tools to communicate their ideas effectively and tell their stories in unique and personal ways.

Throughout the curriculum selected youth media projects are referenced to watch and reflect on. This collection of youth media can be found on the Create with Purpose Vimeo Channel.

​I am so excited about this! I am starting this project. Thank you! I wasn't sure how to begin and create a semester project that was worth the time.

This is a great little video. How did you keep your students on task and patient with the difficult process of stop motion?

Thank you for sharing. Choosing specific solutions to help deal with stress common to everyone was well done. The changing of the smiles made me laugh. Very creative.

The voice over at the beginning of this video is great, when youth are sharing their issues over each other.
