Join us for Stop Motion Moviemaking for Teens!

Movie ReelOn Tuesday, July 30 you can start your movie career with stop-motion moviemaking! Use cameras and our props to take photos and create a short stop-motion film. Then edit your photos together and add sound and other effects. If you would like your masterpiece to be a group effort, bring up to five of your friends. Or, you can make this a solo project. Teens must be comfortable using a digital camera and basic film-editing software.  For Teens going into grades 6 – 12.  Click here to register for the program!
