Stop motion animation is fun and easy. All you need is your imagination and a camera.
Stop motion dates back more than 125 years. A lot has changed in that time, but what hasn’t is that animators move a character or object one frame at a time to make a scene. That’s exactly what we will be doing in this camp. We will take handmade characters and other everyday objects to make an entertaining scene and put it all together with the help of modern technology that happens to be in everyone’s pockets - their phones.
We will do the following:
You may register your youth for an optional, supervised lunch hour from 12-1 pm for the duration of this class.
Students will make a video of two or fewer minutes using a theme of their own, or one chosen by the class.
