Animation Camp

Day 1

Claymation

On this opening day, students will learn what it takes to create an animated film. Every camper will come up with their own individual idea that they will plan by storyboarding, making sets, and sculpting characters.

In the second half of the day, students will make it all come alive by taking hundreds of photos that they will then edit In post-production with sound effects, music, overlays and more.

Day 2

Lego Stop Motion

Day two is all about taking Lego mini-figures 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 special effects, giving the characters voices, and making title and end screens.

Day 3

Practical Stop Motion Effects & Oscar Ceremony

The final day starts off with students creating real-life stop motion movies, learning fun techniques to make it look like they are flying, teleporting, sliding and more.

Students will then choose their favorite film from the past few days to be presented at the Creator Camp Oscars! They will create their own movie trailer and movie poster. And when the red carpet rolls out, the animation, filmmaking and YouTuber camps will come together to view each other's masterpieces.

Campers will also receive an Oscar award in their own film category and goody bag for their hard work!
