First here are a couple digital drawings... While groups were working hard on their animations there were a few kids that got the opportunity to draw on the computer. Super fun!
Let the movies begin!
The last week of Summer Camp was a blast, but also a challenge with 16 kids in our classroom. We buckled down and made some very fun collaborative stop-motion animations. The kids were challenged to work within a team, and do some major problem solving. They were inventive, and creative. Each group came up with a different story, and made their own set, and built their own characters. Please enjoy!
Collaborative Found Object Stop Motion
The first project we filmed was a found object stop motion. The kids worked together to shoot these short films.
STOP MOTION ANIMATION
Next up are the Stop Motion Animation Movies! Enjoy all of our students' hard work!
This movie was made by the older group of campers. They were able to write, direct, shoot, and edit their movie independantly.
This movie was also created by an older group of students, we were impressed by their camera skills!
These next two films were written and shot by our campers ages ranging from 6-8. They did an incredible job building characters and painting their sets.
We also had a chance this week to work on some photography skills. Brandon Thrower came in an taught our campers some photography basics and practical photo editing with the little device so many of us have these days... the phone camera. Here are some of the photos taken by the campers!
