Virtual Summer Camp - Imagination Animation - (Ages 8-12) August 24-28
In the camp, you will learn how to tell stories with expressive characters and exciting action using animation. You'll start by learning stop motion and hand-drawn animation techniques, and how to create characters that can show emotions. You'll learn how to use a mobile device and free apps to create stop motion animations, how to plan a story, and how to add credits and music. You'll also learn about many different styles of animation, and about animators from around the world through seeing short films from Children's Film Festival Seattle. Make friends, make films, and discover your stories in this camp!

What technology and supplies are needed to participate?
1. Each camper will need mobile device, such as an iPhone or Android phone, or other tablet with a camera, or another type of digital camera and a PC or mac. We'll cover free app options for recording and editing in the camp. If you would like to take the camp, but aren't sure if you have technology that will work for it, email jonah@nwfilmforum.org for options.

2. Participants will need to use the free Zoom cloud-based video conferencing service. Zoom meeting details will be sent to all participants a few days prior to the camp start date. Click here for a tutorial on how to join a Zoom meeting.
