LEGO Movie Making Stop Motion Animation Workshops

We have LEGO Movie Making and Advanced Movie Making Workshops running at our Play Centre in Wokingham. These are aimed at children aged 8+ and are two hours long for the Movie Making and 3 hours long for Advanced Movie Making.

Spaces are very limited to ensure the best experience for all participating.

The children will have the opportunity to put their imagination into creating their own LEGO movie, just like Finn and Donovan did during one of our workshops.

Check out their awesome movie… it takes a lot of effort and concentration to produce a short movie like this.

Our LEGO MOVIE MAKING workshop is 2 hours long which will provide plenty of creative fun for our inspiring directors as they get hands on with our movie kits to create their very own LEGO movie. There will be double trouble as we pair the children up to take on the movie making challenges we set them.

We will give a detailed overview of how to make the best LEGO stop motion movie using our iPad minis. We will also be sharing some of our favourite trade secrets to create a movie worthy of the big screen.

During the workshop we will be covering the following points:

Introduction to Stop Motion Animation, what is it and how is it created?
Storyboarding – Discuss initial ideas and how to create a story
Planning the movie set build
Building the movie set and any props that are needed
Creating characters for the story and what role they will play
How to take photos using the iPad and movie making app
Direction on how to make small and smooth movements to create the best movie possible

At the end of the workshop the creations will be played back on the big screen for all to see, and then we’ll upload them to our YouTube Channel so they can be shared at home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately our LEGO Movie Making Stop Motion Animation workshops have a minimum age of 8 years old. We have tried and tested the format with different age ranges but due to the format of the workshop we feel that for the best experience children should be aged 8 +.

If you have a child younger than 8 who is desperate to make their own LEGO movie why not try it out at home? There are plenty of stop motion animation apps available, most of them for free, and all you need is a minifigure or two and plenty of imagination.

No. Parents have the choice as to whether they wish to drop and go or stay. All we ask is that each child is signed in on arrival and an emergency contact number is given prior to leaving. If parents decide to stay and have younger siblings with them please note that they are your responsibility and will not be able to join in with the activities unless a ticket has been purchased.
Unfortunately we are unable to allow the children to take home their LEGO creations.For the Movie Making workshop the children’s movies will be uploaded to our youtube channel – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJjI-RqPLYR3YEG6TIi6d9A?
