We'll learn how to animate Legos, clay, drawings you create on the computer or by hand, & more, using digital photos we take and software like iMovie, Animation-ish, Scratch and iStopMotion. Then we'll add dialog, sounds & effects. By the end of the week, we'll produce a DVD for all to keep with all the movies we make, and hold a public screening Friday at 4 pm!

Bring your own digital camera, tripod, accessories, etc., or use ours. You're also welcome to bring your own supplies to animate - Legos, clay, etc.

Our camp will provide guided instruction in making a digital movie using stop motion techniques with digital photos. We'll also share other animation techniques and provide motivated students the opportunity for independent exploration with additional tools.
Learn more about digital animation at our Edison Animators Wiki.
