Stop Motion

Kids 7–12

Is your kid a fan of animated cartoons and movies? Do you know what it takes to design, plan, and produce a stop-motion animated film? In this camp, students will learn the steps of short film production including storyboarding, filming, editing, and adding visual and sound effects. Students will have the opportunity to create several animated short films in multiple styles including; a fictional narrative with toy animation, the popular and biographical “Draw-my-life,” and, finally a more challenging claymation final project. Through the process of creating these films, students will hone skills in character and story development, camera technique, lighting, and frame-by-frame image capturing. Students will begin using the Stop-Motion iPad app to learn the essential concepts and will be editing their final projects in Premiere Pro.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the qualifications of the Full Sail Labs facilitators?

All Full Sail Labs facilitators receive background checks with Level 2 FBI clearance, are CPR certified, and receive 100 hours of education before they fully step into their roles. They are trained quarterly on the tools and technology, best teaching methods and how to work with different learner behaviors. We also require all full-time facilitators to become certified Apple Teachers.

What does my child need to bring/not bring?

The only thing they need to bring is a lunch, their creative juices, and enthusiasm! Our lab environments are equipped with everything our students need to develop their creative projects.

What are your class sizes?

There is a 1:10 instructor to student ratio and our labs hold a maximum of 24 students for optimal learning. Since groups will be from 10 to 20, there will always be at least two instructors to teach and assist in project development for all students in the lab.

What housing/hotel accommodations do you have/recommend?

Click here for a hotel list. Many of the accommodations on our list offer a special Full Sail rate.

If the week I want is full, is there a waiting list?

Yes. For those classes that are already full, we will maintain a waiting list. To get on the waiting list, you must complete an online application indicating the session in which you are interested. Credit card information is required but will not be charged at this point. As spaces become available, the first name in the waiting list will be called and offered the spot.
