IFP Summer Camps 2016: Stop Motion Animation (ages 12-17)
Starts July 5
Tuesday–Friday, July 5–8, 12–4 pm
Animation is not only fun to watch, it’s fun to make! With stop motion animation, everything around you can come alive! In this camp we’ll explore the basics of animation and work together and in small groups to develop stories, build props and characters, animate them, create soundtracks, and present to the world the amazing things we can do through the powers of stop motion.
John Akre practices, studies, and lives animation. He is working on his third animated feature and has made over 70 animated shorts using a wide variety of animation techniques. His films have won several awards and have shown around the world in venues that include the Louvre museum in Paris. John features his work on his website www.sloppyfilms.net.
