Hire Freelance Stop Motion Animators

Stop motion animation is a film making technique in which objects get manipulated physically and imaged after each manipulation to show independent motions. This technique is almost as old as filming and was invented to animate objects on the screen. Multiple static images are taken and edited to exhibit a different motion. It feels almost magical as this form of animation brings static images to life. It is not a play of drawings, as is the case with 2D images. Instead, it is done using real-time images where each image moves in increment and filming of the frame also gets done in increment. Once all the frames get played in a sequence, it appears like a movement. Mostly, clay figures, miniatures and puppets get used in such stop motion animations as these can easily get repositioned. Besides, household appliances and humans are also used in stop motion animations to give a comedy effect.

What do Stop Motion Animators do?

Stop motion animation movie makers for hire create a picture using a range of characters or objects and exhibit them in various scenes. When these scenes get played, it appears as if the object is moving by itself. The animation does not look like a cartoon one, or a computer generated one rather it appears life-like. These animators use their narrative, photography, lighting and angle knowledge to create a stop motion animation. Stop motion animation is a versatile technique and gets successfully used across industries and verticals.
