Recipe 7 - Animating Your Scenes

What You Will Learn

You will learn how to lock-down your camera and sets in preparation for your first animated scene. You will understand how to frame your scenes through a viewfinder. You will learn how to add sound to a scene. You will also organize your props in a ziplock bag for safe keeping.

Why It Is Important

A mistake 90% of young animators make is not locking down their cameras and sets. We tape the scenes down to the table and tape the props to the background of each scene with small tape loops.
The only items which need to be loose are the animatable bits. Everything else needs to hold still. 
So we lock all un-animatable items down. 
When finished with the silent animation, we add sound. This is the cherry on top of our masterpiece.
