This camp is for the maker, builder, and imaginative kid! Come explore various techniques of stop-motion animation in our week long animation-workshop! Campers create abstract and narrative tales with a wide range of materials including: legos, clay, architectural modeling materials, wire, foam, and more! Campers build mini-movie sets and learn how to light them. Utilize green screens and learn to combine live action footage with stop-motion animation to create truly unqieus films. We encourage children to experiment with different camera angles, add special effects, sounds and music. Children also build props from wire, cloth, and paper mache shot inside a green screen set just like what the pros do! This is a really fun class for kids with big imaginations. Anything is possible when inanimate objects come to life.

Required software/devices: An iPad or iPhone and a $10 software download. You may also use a Mac computer in combination with an iPad or iPhone which serves as the camera device.
