KMVT offers a popular Claymation camp where students will be introduced to a variety of animation techniques, from frame-by-frame (flipbooks) to stop motion animation. Students will learn Clay Animation using the same stop-motion techniques that was used in the Wallace & Gromit films, Chicken Run and other favorite Claymation movies. Collaborating in small groups, students will conceptualize, mold, animate and edit a final project. Student will learn the techniques of conceptualization, planning, creation of clay models, while also learning videography and editing in this hands-on, fun-filled workshop.
