Best I can put this, I hope you have tons of patience. Stop motion is very time consuming. Make sure to plan ahead. Story board your props and environment. a super detailed storyboard. (lighting directions, camera angles and shots, etc.) From there you're able to to set your shots pretty much. Best of luck in the Stop Motion world

One of the best ways is to do research in your area to find out companies and organizations that use animation and go talk with them to see how you can help them or at least get their advice on how you can use these skills. Also, consider taking classes at your local community college and doing internships and coop programs in this area. Send thank you notes to all who help you. I will be interested in helping you further if I can. Good Luck!!
