FilmScene's four-week Virtual Animation Course is an engaging opportunity for your child to learn stop motion animation skills, create their own animated stories, and work with a team! Weekly sessions are hosted online, through Zoom (link provided), and projects are uploaded and work is posted on Flipgrid (link provided), an easy to use platform for video viewing. Each week of our Virtual Animation Course will have a focus on different animation skills, and projects will be geared to reinforce the week's focus. For campers desiring additional or more challenging projects, optional independent activities will be provided for campers to complete, and share the following week. Flipgrid will be used for campers to upload their work, comment on their fellow camper's projects, and get feedback from our instructor.

Returning campers are encouraged, please note the curriculum for this course is similar to what was offered during the November 2020 Virtual Animation Course.
