Teen Tech Time: Stop Motion Animation
Teen Tech Time is a new program that will run during the spring and fall of 2017. The Framingham Public Library will be teaming up with Empow Studios to provide a series of STEAM programs focusing on programming, tech design, animation, robotics and more!
With movies like Frozen, Inside Out, and Zootopia, animations have never been more popular. This class takes one form of animation, Stop-Motion Animation, and teaches kids how to create their own animated mini-movies through storyboarding, filming, and post-production. Materials like clay and paper are used to create characters, backgrounds, and props. Teens work in pairs and depict their stories to show setting, rising action, conflict, and resolution. Once characters and backgrounds are made, students use computers, webcams and animation software to bring their stories to life! Movies are available to take home to share with family & friends.
Space is limited, so sign up by filling out the form below, or emailing our teen librarian John Garrigan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put the grade of the person attending in the message box.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Framingahm Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
