Live Action Filmmaking
In a Live Action Filmmaking after-school program, kids do everything we do in our weekend green screen workshops but in a ten-week class, including filming in front of our giant green screen!
Rated F for FUN!
Digistars programs in digital storytelling combine creativity with art and then integrate technology for a fun learning experience and skills kids will use in their 21st century future.
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.

At your School!
In 2015-2016, Digistars offered after-school programs in fourteen schools aroung metro Denver. We work with individual schools to tailor our program around their after-school schedule. Our programs last for approximately one hour at weekly sessions of seven to ten weeks.
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!
Sign up through your school’s after-school enrichment coordinator, at the link provided in your school’s e-newsletter, or register directly on our REGISTER page by locating the starting date of your program. Where you register is determined by the school’s enrichment coordinator. Sessions indicating a $0 fee use alternative registration methods.
