Summer Camps 2022
Animation & Art Camp is a very popular camp and well attended each year. Many students return to this camp each Summer to advance their work and produce more challenging animated films.
This Summer we have added an advanced class for these students. They will learn how to animate various characters who will appear in each frame doing different things. Students will learn how to incorporate dialogue as well as adding special effects to their films.
- Students are grouped according to age and level.
- This camp rotates around separate work-stations.
This camp concentrates on:
(a) Classical Animation which is Art and Sketching
(d) Stop-Motion Film
(e) Computer Animation – 2D and 3D computer packages
Students are taught the basic skills in each and may decide to concentrate or specialise in any one of these sections.
Students are shown how to prepare and design their storyboards, they also learn how to make the characters for their film from Claymation, they learn how to use cameras to “shoot” different scenes and they learn computer animation where they explore creating characters for their films on the computer using specific animation software packages.
