YOUTUBE ANIMATION

Youtube Animation will give your child a strong foundation in the principles of storytelling through stop-motion animation, this is the process of taking a series of pictures and stitching them together to create a film. Each day, a new animation framework will be introduced; including green screen manipulation, applying special effects, making your own sound effects and more. The Creator Camp Oscars will be hosted on the last day, where your child will present their favorite film they made over the camp!

Please note that students will be required to bring their own iPad for this camp, however, we are happy to rent out our iPads for a small upcharge. 

What can you create?

These examples were made by some of our very own students!

week 1 - 4

Claymation!

During the first four weeks, students will learn what it takes to create an animated film. Students will come up with their own ideas, storyboard, craft sets, create their own clay characters, then make it all come alive by taking hundreds of photos. In post-production, they will edit their movies, add music, and create their own sound effects!

week 5-7

Lego Stop-Motion!

Weeks 5 - 7 are all about taking Lego minifigures on wild adventures! Students will create their own Lego sets and experiment with green screens for the first time, allowing them to put any background they wish in their films. New animation concepts will be introduced including adding special effects, giving the characters voices, and making title and end screens. 

Final Day

Creator Camp Oscars!

Students will choose their favorite film from the past 8 weeks to be presented at the Creator Camp Oscars! In preparation, your child will create their own movie trailer and movie poster. The venue will be transformed into a mini film festival, and all the students will view each others hard work.
