We are pleased to continue a relationship with The Director’s Cut, who specialize in introducing children to digital film and editing. They have worked with thousands of children in classroom and at camps across North America.

Lego Animation

Unleash your inner Spielberg this Summer at our Lego Animation workshop! Film making crews work together with a real film maker to create a stop-motion animation film as part of this popular Day Camp program.

Over the week of Camp, small camper film crews learn to create a storyboard and script for their film. They build and design their Lego sets. Campers then add voices, music, and sound effects to their group’s own action packed, dramatic, or funny film.

Participants will also learn how to market their films by creating a movie poster.

Each participant takes home their own movie on a USB stick and celebrates their film at a red carpet Friday film festival

Campers enjoy the film program in the morning, and then participate in recreational activities during the afternoon.
