Last week we visited the Zeum, San Francisco’s art and science museum for kids and families, where children can explore animation, sound and video production. We enjoyed the museum very much and spent most of our time in making an animation. First we made clay characters, then planned a story and finally filmed our story with camera and computer in a stop-motion animation process. Two hours of hard working and we ended up with 40 seconds of film. 

The characters were sculpted from wire and clay.

…and the final product. Ladies and gentlemen, the world’s premier, the Surfer. (Otso’s mind is occupied with surfing related things at the moment.)
