Stop-Motion Film Camp
Lights, Camera, LEGO! In Stop-Motion Animation Film Camp kids get to make their very own movies. Not only do they get to make multiple films, but they also get to use LEGO bricks and mini-figures as well as the latest in stop-motion animation film software to do so.
What Kids Learn in Stop-Motion Camp
In Brick Flicks Film Camp, campers learn all the elements of film production while producing multiple stop-motion animation films. As a part of the film making process summer campers will learn to develop stories using storyboards, create characters, and film their movies using a high-definition webcam. Then in order to enhance their films, they will learn video editing techniques like voice over, titling, and green-screening. To add to the fun of this tech camp kids use LEGO bricks and LEGO mini-figures to develop their stories.
Furthermore, all stop-motion films produced in this film camp are saved on a complimentary USB drive to share with friends and family. These stop-motion films can be viewed on Windows or Mac computers.
