I explored stop motion, an animated film technique. I focused my research on the history of stop motion, equipment, and materials needed for making a stop motion film, and important parts of the filmmaking process. I applied my research by creating a one minute stop motion with 617 frames, highlighting many of the activities offered in the Middle School at Harpeth Hall. I used American Girl Dolls to imitate girls pursuing a few of these opportunities. From this project, I learned a lot about time management, organization, and what goes on behind the scenes when filmmaking.
