Have you ever wanted to make your own movie like “Chicken Run” or “Wallace & Gromit”? Then join this exciting camp where students will storyboard their idea, then design, create and animate their own clay character. The process starts by building an armature or “Skeleton” for the character. Then all layers of clay are applied until the character is ready for the camera. Students get to operate the digital cameras and make their characters come to life. After the filming is complete, they will become the voices and supply the voice-over. All projects will be edited and a DVD will be provided to every child in the camp.
