“The Landing”-Taking Stop-Motion up a Notch!

Category : posting

New Stop-Motion Trailer

Check out the trailer for a video the kids are working on.  It’s LEGO stop-motion, and it’s called “The Landing”.  It’s centered around a character named Dr. Zorton.  He was mysteriously injured in a lab accident by Batmorph, who just crash landed on a desert planet.  The set was built on a 6 foot table with plenty of play sand.  The kids recorded voice-overs, produced music and learned more about keying green screen footage.  Many of our kids this year are new and have never done ANYTHING like this so it was great exploring this great art form.  Check out their awesome work!

Summer K.A.M.P. Successes!

Category : Uncategorized

A First Time for Everything

What a treat it was to host our first year of afternoon enrichment and Summer K.A.M.P.  The majority of our kids during the summer break were from families who have never experienced our program and the kids came ready to work hard!  Daily, we built sets, wrote scripts, filmed, edited, composed scores and sound effects, produced voice-overs, applied special effects or just dreamed a little.  Starting at the beginning of each week with nothing, and ending with some amazing little ideas coming to life was fantastic.  We are thankful for the positive feedback and look forward to serving you all in the Fall!

Summer K.A.M.P. Creations

Here are some of the amazing videos created by our K.A.M.P. kids this summer:

Week 1 Stop Motion “The Bounty Hunters”

Week 2 Filmmaking “The Ghosts Band”

Week 3 Music Video Production Lip-sync video of “Ride” by Twenty One Pilots

Week 4 Stop Motion Animation “The Flame of Light”

Week 5 Filmmaking “The Missing”

Week 6 Music Video Production Lip-sync Video of “River” by Bishop Briggs

Week 3 Summer K.A.M.P. Video!

Check out our K.A.M.P. Kids from our Week 3 Music Video Production Workshop! After some planning, the kids decided to produce a lip-sync version of “Ride” by Twenty One Pilots. We planned our video, did some location scouting, filmed on the square, utilized green-screen, learned about lighting, applying special effects and DSLR basics and edited our video in Final Cut ProX. What a GREAT week!

Filmmaking K.A.M.P. was a SUCCESS!

Filmmaking Summer K.A.M.P. Week 2

A Success!  In our first Filmmaking Summer K.A.M.P. session, the kids wrote the script, conceptualized the visuals, recorded voice-overs, composed music, filmed, added lighting, edited video, created an original song and worked on a score for this movie.  We closed with a Wrap Party at Butter & Cream and some party time at Decatur Rec!

It is important that kids learn how to co-create their world, and not compete for it.  Their natural inclination is to imagine.  It is amazing what can happen when kids are taught how to organize great ideas into tangible creations!  Some great tools, a few guiding principles and LITTLE bit of time, they can do anything!
