Community-Created Stop Motion Animation

Filmmaker Kelly Sears visited on Oct. 6th and lead a group of community members in a stop-motion filmmaking workshop at the River Gallery. Using 1960s commercials from the Prelinger Archive and found images and ephemera, the groups collaborated to make three separate short films in one afternoon.

This totally unique experience gave our participants a taste of the process of creating the kind of stop-motion films that Kelly creates and a feel for the filmmaking experience, by staring with an idea and walking away with a finished project.

The video is available on Vimeo to stream or download. It’s also available on River Gallery’s Youtube channel:
