Welcome to Animation Camp!

On June 29th 2009 at Stewart Library, Tiny Circus held it's very first Animation Camp. On Day 1 we learned what animations were, broke into groups, and brainstormed the Histories of Clocks, Hiccups, Blinking, and Balloons.

It was a very busy day, spanning from tearing out your own animal name tag to constructing chomping, floating, and blinking props.

The first group of the day views an introductory screening of Kissing, Claps, and Locks in order to get a clear understanding of the art of stop motion animation.

With the help of Terrance (our star of Locks) and Flappy the bird, Carlos illustrates how movement impacts the speed of the animation. By taking big jumps little Terrance quickly passes slow moving Flappy.

The History of Hiccups gets it's start in the corner of Stewart Library. Beware of coconuts...

The afternoon session begins their storming....

Essential story boarding for The History of Blinking. Remember to stop at Sav Ur I's.

What could this possibly be?
Come by Music in the Park on Broad St. at 9:00 p.m. to find out.

A busy 'historian' hard at work. Animations aren't going to draw themselves.

What did you learn today?
