Sculpt your own character from clay and watch it come to life in a short film. Students will learn the basic elements of a good story, design a concept, create a storyboard and scenes, and film with stop motion techniques. Students will create props and learn about lighting and how sound effects and music help create emotion and drama for the viewer. All students will have access to their final edited film to share with family and friends and on social media.

Crooked Tree Staff are available to walk students over from Central Grade School (TCAPS) after school care and Munson Kids Club.  Please call 941-9488 for details.
