Animation Creation! July 6-10th

Our summer workshops for youth are back! We kick summer off with the stop motion greatness that is Animation Creation.

Participants learn the ins and outs of stop motion video and work in teams to develop storyboards, scripts, sets, character development and finally to shoot their animation. Editing and sound composition including their very own film score round out a week of creativity.  By Friday, campers are ready to debut their films with a screening hosted by N2M2L.

Check out this cool collaborative animation intro made by the March Break New Liskeard class of 2014:
