I'm Tortor, a stop motion animator from London. I've worked on a stop motion feature film in 2011, spent several years working in TV and have animated for many high profile brands and clients including Sony Pictures, Public Health England and HP phones.
Further to this I have a strong passion for teaching and sharing my knowledge, which I have been doing online for the last two years - both on YouTube and Skillshare.
Who Is This Course For?
This course is for people of all abilities, although I believe that having previous stop motion experience is a huge benefit, especially if wanting to achieve more complex ideas. There will be something for everyone and the skills learned can be applied in so many different ways. Once you have mastered the process and the steps required you can literally take things whichever way your imagination wants to go.
What Will You Learn?
I will be teaching a dynamic paper cutout process (using a Cricut machine) at varying levels of complexity, from a single colour silhouette style to a four-layered cutout character. You will learn the whole process from how to choose the right reference footage to final delivery for upload online and everything in-between. This course is detailed and comprehensive - it is jam packed full of value, over four (actually over five) hours of content + useful notes + top tips + additional mentorship if you want.
What Will You Need?
A Cricut Explore Air (or similar cutting machine)
Dragonframe software (or equivalent) + a compatible camera. So long as your software has onion skinning and a line-up layer capability you are all good and can apply the teaching.
Adobe Creative Suite (specifically Photoshop) or equivalent image editing software
After Effects and Premiere Pro are optional extras - if you don't have them you will still be able to take this course.
Some reference footage
Some coloured card and (or) paper
Time, patience and good organisational skills
How Are Lessons Arranged?
This course is broken down into easily digestible lesson chunks, 10 of them, some comprising of multiple videos as well as written notes. Together the lessons will take you through the complete process of creating dynamic paper cutout stop motion animation as well as some bonus lessons to bring you even more value.
