LEGO Mini-Course to be held at SEE in August!
August 5th - 9th
9:30am -2:00pm (includes 1/2 hour lunch break)
For ages 8 to 12
Students will create a 30-60 second "Invention and Discovery" film using LEGOÂ® bricks and minifigures. Students will work in groups of 3â€4 depending on class size to create a short stop motion animation film. Groups begin by storyboarding and writing their story on the first day while we discuss the process and expectations. Day two is dedicated primarily to finalizing the story and set design. The final 3 days are for filming and editing.
During filming each student will get to sit as the director, computer operator, and movement
coordinator. Should time allow, students will also voice over their movies and create sound effects,
create an intro and final credits. Movies will be posted to YouTube for students to share their creations
with family and friends.
On average each group is expected to create 30â€60 seconds of film using a 10â€15 frame per second
playback rate. This will require 300â€900 pictures per group. Should groups decide to collaborate on a
story, a longer overall movie is possible by combining scenes.
The cost is $ 215 per child ($200 for SEE members)
The course is limited to 12 participants.
This Mini-Course was created by and will be run by Brickapalooza. The course instructor Eric Kingsley,
