She not only helped me learn skills to improve my brand work and portfolio, but also built up my confidence to keep on succeeding and improving! I’m so glad to have her guidance and expertise from this course."

"...in the first two months have already landed *four* large clients."

- Lisa Walsh

"This is such a fun course, I truly recommend it! Claire provides you with all the stop motion guidance you need. I was also able to participate in a one to one mentor session and it made such a difference to see the animation come to life in person. Claire’s patient, easy to get along with, and very helpful. She'll break down everything step by step while explaining in the process so you get the full scope of how stop motion works. It was a pleasure to take her class and will definitely come back for more mentoring!"

"Claire provides you with all the stop motion guidance you need."

- Jesssica Paredes

"I’m so happy I chose Claire! Since being a mentee with her the past three months I’ve been able to lay a foundation for my business with confidence. Since incorporating her templates and tools I've been able to engage my prospective clients in a more impactful way and have literally landed every single client that has approached me since! She’s given me the knowledge I needed to run smoothly and efficiently. I feel like I have a friend cheering me on and I’m very excited for what my business future holds!"

Questions about the course?
I’ve got answers.


What gear will I need to complete this course?

At the minimum you’ll need a digital camera, tripod, remote, reflector and access to Adobe editing programs. I specifically teach tutorials in Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and After Effects. For those who want to go pro, you'll need studio lighting, a tethering cord and a license Dragonframe for the best results.


How long does this course take to complete?

I specifically designed this course for you to be able to learn at your own pace. You can binge it over the course of a week and create your portfolio work as you go, or you can complete a single module each week. It’s totally up to you and I encourage you to take your time and go at your own speed.


How long will I have access to the course?

You'll have access for lifetime of the course, with a guarantee of one solid year. If I shut down this course one day, I'll provide ample notice. If you’re a founding member with a 1:1 mentor session, you must reach out and complete your session within 60 days of your purchase date or it will automatically expire.


Is there anyone who SHOULD NOT take this course?

If you don't feel comfortable working a real camera, learning advanced software, don’t enjoy self-paced learning, and aren’t ready to put in the necessary work to master a new skill, then this course is not for you. We expect everyone taking the course to bring a positive, "can-do" attitude essential for learning new skills - because we know you can. 


What skills do I need to possess in order to be successful in this course?

This course is for you if feel confident shooting with a real camera, not just your phone. Stop motion is essentially photos strung together, so your photography skills will directly relate to your stop motion’s quality. Basic photo editing, studio lighting, video editing and retouching will also be very helpful for this course. 


I’m new to photography, are you sure I can take this course?

It is definitely possible to create a cool stop motion without shooting in manual mode, but if you’re hoping to learn about the basics of photography, this course is not for you. If you're an amateur photographer who knows the technical side of their camera but isn't sure how to land clients, this course will fast-track your growth. 


Do you offer refunds for this course?

Due to the nature of digital products and gaining instant access to the entire course, all sales are final and non-refundable. If you have any questions about if this course is right for you, feel free to shoot me a DM on Instagram or email me at hello@ouicreatestudio.com before purchasing. 


If I have questions during the course, can I reach out to you?

Absolutely! If you have questions during this course or in the future, leave me a message in the private Oui Academy Facebook Group and I’ll respond as quickly as possible, giving you the ongoing support you need.


Can other kinds of creatives take this course is you don't want to be an animator?

This course was designed for photographers who want to learn stop motion and build a commercial portfolio. Modules 3-5 are specifically animation related. The four other modules would be helpful for any creative who wants to create commercial work and attract paying clients. You may want to consider 1:1 mentoring instead, where we can work together on the same strategies but tailored to your niche. Email me if you have questions and we can discuss - hello@ouicreatestudio.com. 

Empowering fellow female creatives to monetize their passions means everything to me.

I have found a job I absolutely ​love​ that gives me so much freedom and joy -- and I want you to have the same. You deserve to create a life you love, and I’m confident that mastering stop motion will help you do that. With animation you get to revisit the wonder of being a child and truly ​play​ again. I know your profitable, freedom-filled business is just around the corner. Join me and we’ll build your dream business together.
