New for 2015! Create your own character to star in this summer's big blockbuster. Campers will have the opportunity to create their own Claymation/Stop Motion movie. This process includes story board development, creation of claymation characters, building of set and props, instruction in digital claymation filming, movie editing and DVD creation.Your imagination’s the limit, as you make little creatures and then force them to do your bidding. The final movie will be burned on a DVD to take home.

This year, campers have the choice whether to use traditional clay characters or use Lego® minifigures (campers are allowed to bring in their own Lego® or any poseable figures they want to bring to life. We also have a big collection of Lego® Star Wars figures) or Minecraft figures.

In either case sound and special effects (more emphasis wil be on special fx than in previous years) can be added to their movies including getting their characters to fly. The software we use can be used by kids as well as professional studios. In fact it is a partner of Aardman Animations Ltd., the makers of Wallace & Gromit as well as having been used by numerous animators to make Oscar winning and nominated films. Parents: This camp is a very 'hands-on' camp and though less technical than our other computer camps, all equipment/supplies used is professional quality.
