Sample Schedule
  • Day 1: Introduction, Concept and Story
    We’ll start by watching some examples of award-winning stop motion animation and talk about what we like about it and why it works. Then through as series of individual and group exercises, we’ll develop our own concept and storyline.
  • Day 2: Characters and Set
    Working from the concept and story developed yesterday, we’ll break into groups and develop our characters and set.
  • Day 3: Shoot
    Taking turns working as one cohesive production crew, we’ll shoot our characters on set and get all our footage in the can.
  • Day 4: Edit
    This is where all the magic happens. Story. Emotion. Timing. Cutaways. We’ll explore lots of techniques and learn about the technology.
  • Day 5: Premier
    Today we’ll put the finishing touches on our production and get ready for our premier screening. Parents and guests are welcome one hour before camp ends.
