Young cinephiles who want to try their hand at the craft can get in on a crash course during school breaks. Kids get to conceive, write, storyboard, construct sets, shoot and produce a mixed media animated short film using techniques like claymation, pixelationa and cutout animation. In September, put an animated twist on an ancient Greek myth (Sept 23–24), and come November, explore the topic of Mad Science (Nov 3, 11). With help from Dragon frame stop-motion software, they'll be confident in the quality of their work, and they'd better—the films made during camp will be available for viewing on the Festival website! Ages 5–10.
