“Animation Afternoons” with UCF CREATE

In this annual STEAM camp at UCF CREATE, rising 4th and 5th grade students will work in small teams to create stop-motion, short animated films!

Students will learn about the life cycles of different Florida species – like orange trees, frogs, and butterflies – then bring their own Florida species to life by telling a story using stop motion animation. Working alongside graduate level animation instructors and artists, students will use a variety of mediums including clay, paint, and water color pencil; while learning about storyboarding, animation, video editing and sound design to create their finished pieces.

The program culminates in an unforgettable show! Students will present their work to family and friends live at Page 15’s final reading showcase and will be given a flash drive with their animation to take home.


WHEN: Offered for 2 weeks only: June 8-11 and July 13-16, 2020. Mon. – Thurs. 1pm – 4pm.
Students’ final animation premier will take place at Page 15’s reading showcase on Friday from 11am – 1pm. UCF and Page 15 staff members will supervise students from Page 15’s summer camp space, next door to CREATEs animation laboratory each day.

COST: $220 per student.

WHERE: “Animation Afternoons” will be held within CREATE’s animation laboratory at UCF’s Center for Emerging Media in the new downtown UCF campus (500 W. Livingston Street, Orlando, FL 32801).
