Stop Motion Universities mission is to spread the art form of animation throughout the world and make it accessible to everyone willing to learn the skills necessary to make their own productions. All you would need is a camera and computer and you are pretty much ready to start animating.

So why “Stop Motion”? Well, to begin with stop motion animation is unique in that it can use every art form known to man. Stop motion animation is specifically a camera technique designed 100 years ago to give motion to objects that are lifeless. Yet in todays animation world stop motion uses CGI, 2D, model building, puppetry, production design, and pretty much every technique you would see in a live action production. The practical application of many techniques can cross into other production environments which makes Stop Motion University vastly different in terms of an animation school than the others out there.
