Summer Animation Camp Days 3 and 4

On day 3 of camp we reviewed the animations that the students made on Monday and Tuesday. We talked about what they accomplished so far and what they wanted to learn to do better. We brainstormed ideas on how to make smoother animations, such as keeping the camera and tripod still or marking positions with tape on the floor. Then the students practiced these skills by making the animation called “In Your Face.”

Then the students were given the goal of working together to create and animation that was longer than a few seconds and challenged their editing skills. The result was the animation called “In Other News.”

SAC – Day 2 – Stop Motion Scavenger Hunt!

Today’s prompt was a scavenger hunt. Students were broken up into groups and given the following list of stop-motion exercises to complete:

  • Give life to an inanimate object.
  • Turn a person into someone else.
  • Disappear and reappear while walking.
  • Photobomb the other group.
  • Float over a picnic table.
  • Slide backward across grass or down a long hallway.
  • Make a talking hand.
  • Do something creative on the playground.
  • Defy gravity or teleport on the hill.
Students used creative problem solving and the varying experience levels in each group to figure out how to complete the list. During the second half of class the groups experimented with sound effects.

Summer Animation Camp – Day 1

Greetings from the first session of Quest’s Summer Animation Camp!

Our introductory class was inspired by “Prank Call” by PES. You can see the animation HERE.

After watching the video we played a brainstorming game that helped us think of crazy creature heads. Then we broke into groups, created faces out of materials we found around the classroom, and practiced subtle changes to create movement.
