create a pro stop-motion video from start to finish.

You’ll walk away knowing exactly how I created this video!

If you’re like I was, you’ve been dreaming of mastering stop-motion— you want to elevate your content, market your business, and add a new skillset to your toolbox.

The technical side of stop-motion can be daunting, so I'm here to change that.

I remember as I was first learning, specifically struggling with...

"how do i get even lighting?"

"which camera settings should i use?"

"how do i get my camera mounted overhead without tripod legs in the shot?"

Stop-motion is an opportunity to express your creativity using a mix of technology and magic. 

"WHAT ARE the best export settings to make my video look high quality on social media?" 

As I continued to master my craft, I learned more advanced techniques like masking in Premiere Pro, shooting for multiple aspect ratios, and music + sound design.

And finally, I’m able to give you a shortcut to learn it all. I’ve created this course to walk you through my exact processes and techniques— step-by-step in a live studio setting, so you can become a pro in no time.

After our time together you will even have a full video from start to finish, produced under your name. It’ll be like magic.

Teach me!!!

Hi, I’m CoLETTE! 

I went from being a creative who dabbled with her camera to building a stop-motion studio working for the world’s leading brands such as Starbucks, Pottery Barn Kids, Dunkin’, Asics, Redbull and more.

How did I get there?

I fell in love with magic as a kid and followed that same passion to make a career as a stop-motion artist. My work is short & sweet, clever and engaging, bright and colorful.

I’m self-taught, and it’s been quite a long journey to get where I am today. I ALWAYS wished there was someone to show me the way when I was up all night trying to figure out how to light my scene properly, figure out the bells & whistles within Dragonframe, edit more efficiently in Premiere and SO much more. 

I’ve always been passionate about teaching others what I know— and this course is where I get to show you behind the scenes to reveal my exact methods for creating the work we do in my studio.

Here's what past students are saying about COLETTE'S COURSES...

"I first discovered Coco and her work while watching the Adobe MAX conference and have been so inspired to be creative and move out of my comfort zone ever since. I am a graphic designer that runs a stationery business - so I entered this course with a bit of a different objective than I think most. I was looking for another way to market my business and be creative at the same time. Stop motion has been so fun to learn and play with! This course was the creative outlet I didn't know I needed and I have loved every moment of it!"

- steph krahn, Brand Magic student

"This course is truly game-changing to me and the one missing part of my work life as a freelance creator! I can't thank you enough, Coco! I'm so blessed to have finally found such an amazing mentor!"

- Mina Manafi, Brand Magic student

- emilia puentes, Brand Magic student

"Coco's Brand Magic course has been a game changer!! I just started my freelance journey right before I started the course and I really needed the guidance and support I got from Coco's lessons. It really is the best investment I've made in my career. If you're looking to further your career and gain confidence in pricing and pitching yourself to brands, among many other things, then this course is for you!!"

- Carlie Smale, Brand Magic student

"Thank you Colette for this Brand Magic course ! It helped me a lot with administrative tasks (like contract or emails pitch for example). I'm French, so your templates will help me a lot cause I wanted to reach international companies, but I was blocked with language. And liked the concept deck and the media kit templates too!"

- Mannaïg Fouillen, Brand Magic student

"Truthfully I was a bit apprehensive before I bought in because I've been working as a freelancer for almost 2 years now, but Brand Magic was just what I needed. It has the nitty gritty details that I've always wondered about/needed to hear."
