Brand new and exclusive to Code Camp!
First time to Code Camp? Enrol in a Spark camp
Been before? Your child can join a Spark or Ignite camp
• Ages 6-10 (2 day camp)
• Ages 7-12 (3 day camp)
• Ages 8-12 years old (5 days, flexible times)
Animation Camp is the exciting intersection between storytelling, art and technology! Over two to three 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!
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.
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 make them jump, add narration and make things fly through the air (plus lots of other cool things!)
What is the difference between a two and a three day camp?
In the three day camp, students will dive into more advanced stop-motion techniques such as flipping, anticipation, exaggeration and facial animation. They’ll also explore other animation styles, using a second app to make a cool Rotoscope video (combining live footage with drawing animation).
Plus every Animation Camp child takes home a Code Camp t-shirt, wristband and medal!
Please note that students will be required to bring their own iPad or Android tablet to this camp.
• Ages 8-12 years old
Brand-new for Spring we have Animation Online! The exciting intersection between storytelling, art, and technology, where your child will create their own clay and LEGO movies using Stop-Motion animation.
Your child will be welcomed each morning via Zoom, before following our comprehensive learning materials within our online platform Code Camp World. We've converted our in-class lesson plan into child-friendly demonstrations and guides to enable children to learn these new skills in an engaging format from the comfort of their own home.
Select a week of the school holidays and your child will receive 2 hours of exciting and engaging activities to complete each day. This means you don’t have to complete the program at the same time every day. It’s flexible. Your child can be creative when it suits their schedule!
Your child will also be able to communicate any questions they have in real time, with our Australian Live Tutor Support Team through a purpose built live chat function. They'll be on hand to give one on one support at 9:30am - 3:30pm (Sydney/Melbourne time) Monday to Friday.
After the week is over, your child will have the skills & resources to continue creating even more Stop-Motion animation movies!
Full details for these required and other optional materials will be emailed through upon enrolment.
