Do you love films like Coraline, Kubo and the Two Strings, and Wallace and Grommet? Do you ever wonder how those films are made? Here’s a chance to find out!

In this two-week, online adventure, participants will learn the basics of animation through the technique of stop-motion animation. Using our down-shooter cameras and a professional stop-motion program, participants will make animated films with paper puppets, animated personal objects, and more! Each student will complete a short animated movie with sound and receive a compilation of the class’ work at the end of the camp!
