Summer Camp Week 4: Animation
August 21, 2017@10:00 am - August 24, 2017@3:00 pm$160
A fun, 4-day animation workshop creating art, making new friends and learning new things! Prior animation experience is not required, but definitely geared for those who enjoy drawing and working with art materials. The program begins with a group sharing and brainstorming to develop the story or “concept” for the animation. Participants will work together as a production team creating the art for characters, props, set, etc. Come prepared to work! Film screenings will cover the history of animation and a sampling of short films by international animators using a variety of animation techniques.
A frame-by-frame capable, digital video camera is used to approximate classical film animation but with the added speed, immediacy and flexibility of digital video. Post-production editing and mastering of copies is accomplished after the last formal class. DVDs are available for participants within several days.
All art materials and a copy of final animation on DVD will be provided. Please bring some of your best drawings or other artwork to share with others on your first day, healthy snacks and a bag lunch.Any additional DVDs @ $6 each must be ordered before the last class.
