Get ready to direct your very own stop motion animated movie. Writers, directors and producers, ages 8 and up, will produce their own movie by:
Stop Motion is an animation technique in which students create movies using different objects or characters. Students take a series of still photos, moving their characters based on the script and storyboard they created. The photos are put together and played, adding sound and special effects, to create a moving film. Students are paired to work in teams and create their own movie from start to finish.
AAALC Stop Motion participants can choose from several stop motion animated characters that include Lego figures, clay figures and Minecraft characters. This activity develops a variety of STEM skills. All materials, hardware, software and cameras are provided.
Movie Making is one of the most complex and involved processes students can complete. From idea to movie involves brainstorming, planning, storyboard, writing, illustration, digital animation, editing, sound and more! AAALC will show your young producer, director and writer how movies are made from start to finish. Better yet, let them complete their own movie! Campers will use clay, Legos or other materials to create characters and design backdrops, ultimately producing their own animated movie.
