Our LEGO Stop Motion Animation School Workshops are designed to bring a topic to life in a practical and engaging way. We design our workshops to support and reinforce literacy and media skills as well as allowing the children to have creative freedom.
We have a number of set themes for the children to follow which is especially useful if the class are covering a particular topic at the time e.g. Vikings. We also deliver workshops where we empower the children to create their own theme and plot of the movie.
These workshops are aimed at children in Year 3 upwards [aged 7+] and are typically two hours long. Children will be put in to pairs or maximum a group three to produce their movie. We ensure that all children are hands on and everyone is engaged at the same time, there is no waiting around. The task requires the children to not only work in a team but as a team to achieve their objective. Without even being aware the workshop requires the children to demonstrate communication skills, delegation and time keeping all whilst being creative and having fun.
We will give a detailed overview of how to make the best LEGO stop motion movie using our iPad minis and movie making kits. We will also be sharing some of our favourite trade secrets to create a movie worthy of the big screen. At the end of the session we will provide the school with an electronic copy of all the videos.
