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

How do the satellite locations compare to the Winter Park location?

Students at each of our summer camp locations receive the same learning experiences with the same gear and equipment. However, students at our satellite locations receive a discount as our Winter Park location has access to Full Sail University’s campus. Because of campus amenities, our Teens’ Summer Camps are only available at Full Sail Labs Winter Park location.

What happens if a camp is cancelled?

Full Sail Labs reserves the right to cancel or postpone any camp due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. If a camp is cancelled, registrants will be notified immediately and refunds will be processed.

All cancellations and withdrawals are subject to a $100 cancellation fee per camp, per child. No refunds are given after a camp begins.

Can I choose more than a week?

You can join us for as many weeks as you like during the summer and even choose the same subject. Since each subject is tailored to your child's interests, they'll have a whole new experience.

Do you provide lunch and snacks?

Students need to bring their own lunch and a preferred snack. We’ll provide water and some healthy snacks.

Are there early drop off and late pickup times?

Early drop off is from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. with late pick up available until 6:00 p.m.

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

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 to offer the spot.

How are refunds processed?

If you need to cancel or withdraw from a camp, please notify our office as soon as possible, either by phone or in writing (mail or email). A cancellation fee will be applied. No refunds are given after a camp begins.

Can my child take the same Summer Camp more than once?
