Stop Motion Animation


Bring your story to life in clay!

Kids are only limited by their imaginations in a stop motion animation (Claymation) program! A magical rainbow unicorn? A talking ice cream cone? An army of dolphins? These are all characters brought to life by kids in previous Digistars programs!

We watch and analyze animations to learn the elements of storytelling, and then map out our stories before molding characters and decorating the sets. Finally, we film and edit our movies into masterpieces!

Documentary Filmmaking

In a Documentary Filmmaking after-school program, kids explore a topic of their choosing and make a Ken Burns-style documentary movie about it.

From the history of Marvel Comics to the Pokemon craze to how GPS caching works… the possibilities are limitless.

Rated F for FUN!

Our trained and fingerprinted instructors arrive with their infectious passion for movies and filmmaking. They carry all the materials and technology needed to create moviemaking magic with stop motion animation. Students need only to arrive with a smile and ready to have fun!
