SUMMER CAMP: Creative Animation (ages 13-16)

SUMMER CAMP: Creative Animation (ages 13-16)


When you animate, you have a world quite literally at your fingertips— we’ll teach you how!

Animation can be a powerful method of storytelling, transporting viewers into realms of endless possibilities. From your favorite characters to your own magical world, campers will create their own animated shorts using variety of techniques within stop-motion claymation, traditional paper animation and 2D digital animation. Campers will also learn to use professional software + tools such as: wacom tablets, Hue and DSLR cameras, light boards, paint and creative software such as Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Animate.

Campers will gain fundamental understanding of the creative software and digital tools used to create professional animations, with hands-on instruction while actively creating. All campers will leave camp with a reel of their animations easily shareable with family and friends!

All films & creative projects completed in ASoF camps will screen for the public as part of our annual Loud & Clear Youth Film Festival at Alamo Drafthouse in August 2019. All camps are a flat fee of $275 with no additional costs and include a free summer camp t-shirt for each camper registered.
