Coastal processes - stop animation



What is 'Stop Animation'? Watch the following two videos - how were they made?




It's time to play with Play-Doh!

You are going to produce a stop animation explaining the formation of one of the following:

  • cliffs and wave cut platforms
  • arches, stacks and stumps
  • bays and headlands
  • spits

The first stage is to storyboard your animation. This could be by hand or using software such as Google Slides.

Use (homemade) Play-Doh, a digital camera and some suitable software to produce your short (30 second) geographical animation. You should be aiming for about 12 photos per second of animation. An audio commentary can be added at the end. Alternatively a text commentary can be added to the movie.
