Basics Animation: Stop-Motion

Signed copy of the book by reknowned animator Barry Purves.

Basics Animation: Stop-motion teaches the skills required to develop as a creative stop-motion animator or articulated puppet maker. It explores how all the elements of film-making camera work, design, colour, lighting, editing, music and storytelling come together in this unique art form. Students will learn to use and exploit the particular types of movement, characters and stories that characterise stop-motion. The book is packed with tips and suggestions to help you get the most out of your own stopmotion films, accompanied by full-colour illustrations and case studies demonstrating how film-making masters through the years have used it in feature films, short films and TV series.

Basics Animation: Stop-motion also examines the evolution of stopmotion, from its almost accidental beginnings to a much-loved form of storytelling in its own right one that continues to push boundaries after 110 years.
