About Animation Camp

Animation camp is the exciting intersection between storytelling, art and technology! Over two days, your child will create two movies from scratch using stop-motion animation. Stop-motion is the process of taking multiple images of objects and stitching them together to look like they’re moving - it’s an incredibly fun and creative way to tell a story!

Day One

Students will get stuck right in and learn what it takes to create an animated film (did you know Chicken Run took 7 years to make?)! They’ll develop an idea for their first short film, create a set, design and build clay characters and bring it all to life taking hundreds of photos to create an animated movie! In post-production they’ll edit their masterpiece and add music, sound effects and credits.

Day Two

Students will build on their new skills to create a LEGO movie. They’ll use special effects and professional stop-motion techniques to take their movie to the next level! Our LEGO figures will go on exciting adventures as we learn to animate their faces, add narration and make things fly through the air (plus lots of other cool things!)

Please note that students will be required to bring their own iPad for this camp.
