About Us

Welcome to Wonderfy

Thanks for stopping by!

Our Mission

Wonderfy was created to provide a fun and encouraging learning environment for young minds. Stop Motion Animation opens up a wide realm of creative opportunities for students. The process engages a wide range of create disciplines, from writing and story development, to designing and building the characters and worlds of the story, to the technical craft of photography.

The central concept of animation, which is making small adjustments to an object to create the illusion of movement, is very intuitive. It’s simplicity opens up the imagination to where even young children can participate. It is a great way to express yourself. We wanted to share our passion for storytelling by empowering the next generation of storytellers. So we created Wonderfy as a means to carry this out.

Our Class Philosophy

Our overarching principal in our courses is to keep it simple, practical, but above all fun. We begin lessons by explaining key concepts, illustrating these core ideas with a variety of visual examples. We then move into practical, hands on exercises that help reinforce the lesson.  And each lesson is designed to build upon the last.

We designed our curriculum for the 10 to 14 year old age range. But teenagers and children younger than that can certainly benefit from taking the course as well. Our free sample course would be the perfect place to start to see if this class is the right fit for you. The free course is actually the first few lessons from the Intro to Stop Motion Animation course. So when you are ready to enroll, you will have a jumpstart on the full class.

The Technology

The driving technology behind the course is the smartphone. These tiny computers we carry with us everywhere come prepackaged with everything we need to get started. The only thing to add is a stop motion animation app. Once that is downloaded and installed on your smartphone or tablet, you can be animating within five minutes. This democratization of technology is astounding. It opens up endless avenues for creative expression. Needless to say, we are rather energized by the prospect.
