Putting It All Together

Making movies is all about collaboration. In order to complete any film project, students need to work together as a team. The skills young filmmakers learn at Idyllwild Arts are not just technical relating to f/stops and camera angles; they are also team collaboration, budgeting, time management and so much more. From screenplay to final edit, the students learn how to make movies by making movies. They do not just talk about movies they actually make movies.

Stop Motion Animation for Teens

Ages 10-13, 14-18

June 22–July 3, 2020
Two-week session

Do you love Nightmare Before Christmas or Chicken Run? In this exciting film workshop, you will learn to tell your story using the art of stop motion animation. In stop motion, the filmmaker moves physical objects in small increments, capturing one frame at a time. When you play those photographs together rapidly, you create the illusion of movement.

Explore the possibilities of stop motion through online instruction and working on your own projects. Learn to use stop motion software and get insider filmmaking tips on creating and lighting your sets, drafting your script, and bringing your characters to life.

Led by Idyllwild Arts Film and Digital Media Chair Shelly Short, the workshop will take you through the creative process, working with clay or other items around your home.
