“Animation offers a medium of storytelling and visual entertainment which can bring pleasure and information to people of all ages everywhere in the world.” -Walt Disney
According to the Princeton Review, “It is challenging to achieve the level of professionalism expected in this industry (animation) without study.” This is why children as young as nine are beginning their journey to become an animator. One of the first steps they take is enrolling in a stop-motion animation camp. Stop-motion animation camps are a great opportunity for kids to learn the basics of movie-making, editing, and storytelling. There, they can refine their skills before they move on to one of the top colleges to study animation.
