Mix your creative, original ideas with photography to create some fun, interesting and creative stop-motion animation. This 5 day mini-camp will focus on varying ways to create people-based animation, clay-based animation and what you see above...cereal-based animation. You’ll learn how to create simple animations with clay, paper, sand and whatever materials strike your fancy.
In addition, we've added a strong story-telling component so students can learn about character, plot and how to develop their themes into meaningful stories that they create. In this full-day camp, students have the opportunity to develop their themes more deeply and create work that illustrates their personal stories.
Students can work alone or in pairs to create their stories and record them using tablets or cameras. They will use basic animation story to learn basic editing techniques as well as how to set up, light and record their animation. Students will be mixed into voluntary age-based groupings.
