Stop Motion Animation & Film Making Camps | Ages 8-14 | Born: 2008-2014

Lego/Clay Animation & Film Making

We will be offering three different programs during the camps season that will be facilitated by our Gryphon Camp Counsellors 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 and music videos.

In-Person Film Making camps with Film Camp In A Box

This year, we are excited to partner again with "Film Camp In A Box" for three amazing and intriguing camp programs that are delivered in-person. The three programs this summer are: Lego/Clay Stop Motion Animation, Movie Making and Music Video Production. These camps are in collaboration with Film Camp In A Box. Half of the each day during the week will be dedicated to learning and working specifically on their movies with the "Film Master". During the other half of the day, the Gryphon Counsellors will continue to assist campers on ideas for their movie, but also plan and facilitate activities that will have them being active and outdoors. It's a great mix of traditional camp activities and movie making. 

Outcomes delivered through these camp 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 Animation/Stop Motion | Ages 8-11

Bring your Lego, action figures, toys, or clay to life this summer. 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.

Campers will have access to the following equipment while at camp: MacBook Air loaded with instructional stop motion movie content | HD Stop Motion Camera | Arts supplies to create a set | In Person Instruction

Movie Making | Ages 11-14

Action, adventure, comedy and suspense await in this Film Making Camp. Using the equipment and under the guidance of a master filmmaker and Gryphon Camp Counsellors, 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.

Mentored by master filmmakers, campers will engage in hands on exploration of the film making process, including pre production, production and post production. Working in small crews, they will learn about cinematography, script writing and editing. Campers will then create, act in and edit a short film and movie trailer. Each film crew will use a Mac Book, HD camera, tripod, green screen, and boom mic under the guidance of their own filmmaker.

Music Video Production | Ages 11-14

Rock and Roll all night and every day at our Music Video Production in a Box workshop. Using the equipment and under the guidance of a master filmmaker and Gryphon Camp Counsellors, your young filmmaker will learn to create their own music video to one of their favourite songs. The final result.....a music video to enjoy on the big screen with family and friends.

Mentored by master filmmakers, campers will engage in hands on exploration of the music video production process, including pre production, production and post production. Working collaboratively in small crews, they will learn about cinematography specific to music videos and advanced editing techniques. Using an existing pop culture song, campers will listen to the lyrics, learn them and create a story, encapsulating the theme of the lyrics. They will then act in and edit their full music video. Each film crew will use a Mac Book, Final Cut Pro an HD camera, tripod, and green screen under the guidance of their own filmmaker.
