Club Description

In this course, kids jump right back into the director’s chair as they learn to mould their very own movies using clay, playdough or similar soft materials. Over five interactive sessions, kids will refine the techniques they developed in course 1 and they will develop new skills in character creation, set design, green screening, lighting, and special effects to name a few. From producing their first script to editing their final cut, your kids will have fun with their club mates as they watch their concepts and ideas come to life.  
 
This is the perfect course to develop creative confidence and independence in any aspiring movie-maker. YouTube, Netflix, or Pixar won’t know what hit them when your kids go knocking at their doors with their new stop motion animation skills.

Key Learnings

Stop Motion Animation teaches kids about the importance of the 3 P’s.

  • Patience: A simple scene can have hundreds of frames with minor adjustments being made between each frame. This course will teach kids that patience pays off when they strive to achieve great results.
  • Precision: Creating a realistic scene, with fluid movement, requires a director to fully evaluate all of the details in the scene and the surrounding areas. Kids will develop key project management skills, as they look at how their characters, lighting, camera, and set changes between each frame.
  • Perseverance: Scenes don’t always work out on the first take. In this course, kids will be shown that that experimenting, re-adjusting and starting over is a natural part of the movie-making process, as well as being a natural part of most 21st Century roles.
Other Takeaways
  • Children will learn how technology can be used for creative purposes. 

  • Children will build on the skills they already have (writing stories, imagining characters, drawing) and then use these skills, along with new ones, to make a movie. 

  • Children will be taught about stop motion techniques along with the roles of the scriptwriter, voice-over artist, animator, set designer and more.
