Animated Storytelling Online Summer Camp!

Start them young and ignite their passion!

Lori Yearwood

In our animated storytelling online summer camp, run through BCIT, we aim to hone in on the endless imagination and creativity of youth as we teach them animated storytelling. Together we will enter the exciting world of interactive digital storytelling by creating animated books and stop motion videos.

Setting Up for a Stop Motion Animation Shot

Students will learn to storyboard, create voiceovers, experiment with soundscaping, play with coding, and discover how to transform their creations in the editing suite.

Storyboarding Skills in Action

In addition to stop motion storytelling, the coding students learn will be applied to creating a digital storybook, complete with moving characters and interactive features.

Here’s an example of an interactive digital story that can be made with the skills learned in our camp:

In this online camp, campers will connect with each other and their instructors through interactive video sessions and a secure online camproom with discussion boards. Each day will include a morning and afternoon interactive video session, time to work on the day’s challenge with instructor guidance, and an exercise / relaxation session.
