About this camp

Stop Motion Animation combines transferable skills such as collaborative planning, storyboarding and scripting with a fun and interesting environment to make an experience your child will be raving about the whole summer.

After an introduction to stop motion animation, set building, and the software they’ll use, they’ll be ready for their first animation. Throughout the course they’ll focus on the more intricate side of filming and production. Finally, they’ll produce a final project featuring overlays, chroma keying, audio and more! Hope they’re ready to stretch those creative muscles.

Tutors will be guiding them every step of the way to help make sure their ideas become reality.

Don’t miss the final showcase on Friday at 4PM, when FunTech will have the pleasure of hosting the world premiere of all the films that the class has made! Parents and guardians have an exclusive invitation to this prestigious event.
