Making Claymation or Stop Motion Movies

Did you ever watch a one minute video clip of any movie and wonder how long it took to put the movie together?  Regardless of whether the movie is claymation, stop motion, or standard, you might be surprised to learn how long it took for the creation to become a reality.  Students will create a character or use an existing character to make a one or two minute movie with a storyline.  Students may do this using stop motion techniques or by using Claymation techniques.
