I’m working on a very lo-fi Cut-Out Stop Motion Animation course. It’ll be ~30-mins of lesson materials in total. Kid-friendly! Aimed at first-time animators! Here’s the first segment.
Warning: I’m not a Youtuber. I recorded VO in the memos app on my phone. I stretched 540p b-roll to 1080 pixels wide. Production value on these vids is very lo-fi. But hey, that’s in the spirit of everything we do.
Feel free to use these videos in your own teaching (non-commercial only).
