Vacation Program

  • Friday, February 22, 2013
  • 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
  • Designed for ages 10 to 14

Produce a short film using stop motion animation, a photographic process invented over a century ago which is still used in movies and cartoons to this day. You'll draw and build scenery, characters, and props out of paper, fasteners, and tape, then tell your epic tale in 60 seconds.

We'll provide the materials and a script (rumor has it a certain wizarding story is in the works). Returning students can expand their skills by adding hand-drawn Special Effects with the powerful Pixelmator painter.
