The Space Bass Stop-Motion Academy is pleased to announce the first ever Stop-motion Crash Course!  

In just one weekend you will learn everything you need to know to make a professional quality stop-motion animated film of your own.  

My name is Corky Quakenbush, and I have had a career centered around the creation of stop-motion films.  Whether you are a lover of stop-motion animation who wants to learn how to create all the elements necessary to create a stop-motion film as an art project (like how I started out) or whether you want to create broadcast and theatrical quality stop-motion projects for top tier entertainment outlets like network television, wide release theatrical features, or major web and mobile  content portals (like I eventually moved on to), you will find this full weekend event your chance to gain in-depth knowledge about all aspects of the process from highly accomplished stop-motion artists who are working in the industry today!*

In this two-day workshop, you will learn how to move from script to fully finished stop-motion animated project.
