Minecraft Animators/Lego Films and Stop Animation (ages 8-13, Aug. 7-11)


Black Rocket Productions will be delivering a daily combination of animated game design (Minecraft Animators) and stop action films (Lego Films and Stop Animation). Students will work in pairs or teams for most of the program.

Minecraft Animators Bring your favorite Minecraft characters to life in an animated short film! Learn how studios like Pixar and Disney make movies like "Inside Out" and "Frozen" by using techniques like keyframing, tweening, texturing and animating rigged 3D models! Student projects will be available on a Black Rocket website to share with friends and family. You do not need to own a Minecraft account to use the software in this class.

Lego Films and Stop Animation Make your LEGOs come to life! Bring in your favorite action figures or LEGOs and create a short film with your friends. Whether you want to recreate a scene from "Star Wars" or design a world of your own, this class brings your dreams to the screen. Students will need to bring in LEGOs or action figures from home, but all other equipment provided. Student-created films will be available on a password protected website to share with friends and family.

$399 program cost + $ 30 fee
