Description:

Clay Tech is a fun, hands-on introduction to clay animation.  Students will work in groups to create storyboards, build characters, film and edit their own movies.  This form of non-stop animation uses clay characters and props.  Characters are arranged against a backdrop and photographed, then moved very slightly and photographed again.  When pictures are strung together in a movie, the characters appear to be moving on their own.  Clay Tech exposes students to the art and science involved in creating animation and introduces them to a variety of career options of which they may be unaware.  Each student will receive a copy of their completed video to share.
