Movie Making and Animation
July 10th-14th, 10:30-3:30, w/ all day Tuesday field trip (transportation and food provided) to Aspen Art Museum
Students will learn the art of putting imagery in motion as they explore a variety of techniques, including traditional stop-animation, claymation, hand-drawn animation, digital film and computer graphics like titling and film effects. Our distribution point will be digital with an emphasis on showing completed stories to a collected audience of family and friends.
Students are encouraged to explore creativity in storytelling with a variety of media, such as clay, photos, natural materials and groups of actors. We will work with equipment on hand, such as iPhones, iPads, digital cameras and laptops.
Daily demos and exercises educate young storytellers in technique, theory and history of the motion media. Students benefit from access to accounts with social media such as Instagram, Flipagram, Vine, iMovie, Garage Band, Soundcloud, YouTube, Vimeo and more. Social platforms, apps and software are the backbone of Independent, low-budget/ no-budget media distribution.
Katherine Hadar, CMU: Instructor of Art will be offering this class that is open for students 8-18. Please bring a smart device to each day of the class. If needed, the Delta Library District loans iPads, please reserve one for the week. Students will need to bring a lunch/water each day.
