Everything is Awesome!: LEGOs Stop Motion Animation - Ages 5-7

  • Museum of Design Atlanta 1315 Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, GA 30309 USA (map)

Ages 5-7

Everything is awesome, especially when you’re part of a design team! Join us for a morning of LEGO and film fun as we create our own Brickfilms.

From Iron Man’s suit to the city of Bricksburg from The LEGO Movie, designers play an important role in telling the stories we love. From fitting our favorite characters for costumes to creating adventurous worlds for them to explore, the work of designers is key to making stories come to life. This winter, young designers will take part in creating their own stories. Through hands-on exercises, campers will learn to think in motion, and capture individual frames to mimic fluid movement.

Beginning with storyboarding and ending with filming, campers will organize themselves into film production crews and collaborate to create a movie trailer using stop motion animation. While creating their stop motion project, campers will learn the basics of film and UX (user experience) design and will use their new skills to create and refine movie trailers that campMODA families will receive following camp.


Campers Will:

  • Understand the role of design within the film industry through hands on exploration of storytelling, storyboarding, and scenography

  • Practice filming and photography using stop motion animation techniques

  • Create sets, characters, and title sequences using LEGOs, and other prototyping materials

  • Develop problem solving skills through collaboration and iteration

  • Learn to use film editing software

Enrolled in this camp before? No problem! We'll pick up where you left off so your camper can keep making and learning.


Cost:

Members: $65/ Non-members: $75

Blair strives to combine her studies of race and ethnicity with design in order to create programming for children that is not only relevant to their experiences, but also presents them with ideas that originate beyond their backyards. She crafts unique field trip experiences that support and reinforce classroom learning through hands on activities, and tours of MODA's rotating exhibitions. Blair also heads up MODA's Education Partnerships – a series of meaningful collaborative efforts between MODA and various schools and organizations that strive to incorporate design as a problem solving tool for addressing 21st century challenges.
