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)
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).
Every kid takes home a Code Camp t-shirt, wristband and medal!
Code Camp commences at 9:00 am and finishes at 3:30 pm. Drop-off starts from 8:30 am and pick-up ends at 4:00 pm. At selected venues we offer extended hours from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm - this availability will be visible at the booking page.
Please note that students will be required to bring their own iPad or Android tablet to this camp.
