Little movie buffs get behind the screen and learn how to make their own original films and video games at this sophisticated media camp. Using top-notch technology, they create stop-motion animations, record and piece together videos and build settings and characters from their imaginations for one-of-a-kind games, plus they get a chance to meet professional media makers. Specialized sessions include Next Generation Animators (July 18 to 22), Claymation Creators (Aug 13 to 17), Indie Game Makers (July 25 to 29), Digital Game Designers (Aug 8 to 12) and Future Filmmakers (Aug 15 to 19). And there’s Puppeteers in Training (Aug 22 to 26) for junior Jim Hensons. At the end of the week, all campers go home with a personal USB drive loaded with their finished project. Extended hours are available for an additional fee. Ages 9–13.
