Children’s Filmmaking Workshop
Saturdays, June 13, 20 & 27 from 9:30 am – 11:30 am
Teacher Michelle Ciardulli • Ages 5-13 •
Kids age 5-13 learn film animation and special effects. A terrific opportunity for budding young filmmakers to learn the trade and launch their cinematic creativity.
Course Tuition $145. Tickets available at www.CinemaArtsCentre.org or at the box office.
The first session is about line drawing animation. Your child will be able to create and watch their very own animation on real 35mm and 16mm Motion Picture film. Children’s faces will light up while they use the light boxes to make their drawings come to life. Their animation drawing is shown on a computer program from a laptop. The 35mm film will be presented at the end of the session.
The second session teaches stop-motion-animation. Be hands-on as your child shoots a scene of stop-motion animation using fun changeable figures on an animation movie set. The finished film is shown at the end of the session.
In the third session, your child will star in movie special effects. Experience the side of Hollywood that Long Island has never seen as they interact and demonstrate green screen and special effects. Your child will see themselves on the movie screen in various clips of famous films while on a green screen movie set.
