Film and Animation summer camp for kids…

Sean Corcoran of The Art Hand was recently commissioned to facilitate a Film and Animation summer camp for kids at the Gealach Gorm Theatre in the Kill Community Centre. The practical activities throughout the week included flip book animation, a storyboard workshop, chalk animation, time-lapse and stop-motion.

We also conceived, wrote, rehearsed, shot and edited a live action movie called Villains and Heroes which we premiered at the end of the week to friends and family of the cast and crew. We turned the theatre into a pop up cinema for the week and screened Wallace and Gromit, early Mickey Mouse movies and a series of Miners Movies made by Sean and Angela Mulcahy.

Everyone got to try out the equipment and there was plenty of opportunity for brainstorming and discussion and we looked at lots of new film creation software and apps. A lovely bunch of kids from 7 to 12 years of age who worked excellently together and achieved some great results.

Here’s 5 of the films that were made during the Film and Animation Summer Camp…
