My Stop Motion kids

This summer I taught a week-long stop motion animation camp to a small group of 6-10 y/o kids as part of the Young Inklings Group. The Society for Young Inklings is a workshop for budding writers and storytellers that works with elementary age kids in schools.

I taught various forms of animation including: white board, animating objects (such as candy), paper cutouts and, of course, claymation.  We also worked on story, sound, POV and developing a memorable character.

The kids had a blast and produced some interesting and very funny work. Here is a sampling of one of the movies they created.  (Um, yes, that’s my voice hamming it up as the Evil Mushroom Villain.  Thanks for asking .  😉
