Stop-motion animation is a fun way to capture your stories and entertain your friends and family. Many famous animators got their start creating stop-motion animation. This process involves posing characters in scenes and situations and photographing each stage of their movement to create animation that reveals their story. In this digiSTORY KC workshop, girl scouts ages 9 - 15 will work in teams of 2 or 3 to create an original story which they will animate through Claymation, LEGO® characters or other objects. They will photograph their character scenes against a Green Screen background using a laptop and webcam. They will add voiceovers, sound effects, music tracks, titles, credits and other features to provide multimedia interest. They will publish their animation to digiSTORY KC’s YouTube Channel where they can share their story with friends and family. The workshop consists of four mornings--workshops begin at 8:30 a.m. Monday July 24th through Thursday, July 27th and end at 12:30 p.m. each day.
