Lego/Clay Animation & Film Making | Ages 8-15 | Born: 2007-2013

Lego/Clay Animation & Film Making

We will be offering two different programs during the camps season that will be facilitated by our Gryphon Clubhouse Leaders and a "Master Filmmaker" from Film Camp In A Box.  Campers will have the opportunity to use professional materials to create film, stop motion or claymation films.

***THESE PROGRAMS WILL BE FACILITATED ONLINE VIA ZOOM***

This year, we are excited to partner with "Film Camp In A Box" for these two amazing and intriguing camp programs that will be facilitated from the comfort of your own home or backyard.  We will be offering two different programs during the camps season that will be facilitated by our Gryphon Clubhouse Leaders and a "Master Filmmaker" from Film Camp In A Box.  Campers will have the opportunity to use professional materials to create film, stop motion or claymation films.

Outcomes from these programs are: Learn and practice the digital story telling process | Engage with digital equipment for meaningful outcomes | STEAM engagement using math, arts, technology and engineering | Oral/Visual communication skill development | Collaboration and social engagement | Digital media literacy skill development | Critical and abstract thinking | Understanding of communication using distance learning 

Lego Stop Motion and Claymation Films | Ages 8-11 | Monday & Tuesday (with Wednesday Showing)

Bring your Lego, action figures, toys, or clay to life this summer in your own home or backyard.  You will be led by a master filmmaker who will facilitate an exciting program about stop motion animation.  Each camper will learn to storyboard, develop a script, create characters, create camera angles, edit, design a set and add special effects, music and titles.  The result will be a creation of a stop motion blockbuster film that we will watch together as a group.  Throughout the program, a Gryphon Clubhouse Leader will also facilitate some other movement programs that the campers will engage in and get active.

Each camper will receive their own box that has been cleaned and sanitized prior to arrival.  They receive this box on the day before the program (Sunday) and then return it to Gryphon Camps at a specified time on the Tuesday (after the program). On Wednesday we will gather online to watch our films and do a final activity.  Campers will have the box for the entirety of the program and therefore can continue developing their movies in the evening.  Campers will receive the following equipment: MacBook Air loaded with instructional stop motion movie content | HD Stop Motion Camera | Arts supplies to create a set | Kid friendly how to make a movie guide | On demand video conference instruction

Timelines of the Program: Sunday (Pick up equipment) | Monday (online program from 9:00am-3:30pm) | Tuesday (online program from 9:00am-3:30pm) | Tuesday (return equipment to Gryphon Camps by 5:30pm | Wednesday (movie premieres 12:15-1:15pm)

Film Making | Ages 11-15 | Thursday & Friday

Action, adventure, comedy and suspense await in this 2-day Film Making Camp In A Box.  Using the equipment and under the virtual guidance of a master filmmaker and Gryphon Clubhouse leader, your young filmmaker will learn to story board, develop a script, create camera angles, edit, and add special effects, music and titles.  The final result.....a blockbuster to enjoy on the big screen with family and friends.

Each camper will receive their own box that has been cleaned and sanitized prior to arrival.  Campers will pick up their box of supplies from Gryphon Camps on Wednesday.  Then the program will run Thursday and Friday from 9am-3:30pm.  Campers must return the box by 5:00pm on Friday.  Campers have the box for the entirety of the program and therefore can continue developing their movies in the evening.  Here is a list of what campers receive in their box of resources for the program: MacBook Air loaded with how to make a movie content | Pro HD Camera | Tripod | Green Screen | Boom microphone with pole | Kid friendly how to make a movie guide | On demand video conference instruction
