It was stop motion animation that brought to life Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas on the big-screen and put Comedy Central’s long-running Robot Chicken into motion.

As part of Teen Tech Week, the Library is offering a week’s worth of opportunities to learn—or polish—the technique, with a series of two-hour stop motion animation workshops at seven of our branches.

Beginners and advanced animators (ages 12-18) can use the Library's equipment to create their own video shorts and enter their work into a contest!
