About Animated Storytelling

Working in groups or on their own, campers will write a story, either original, or a retwisting of a known story and make a video of it simply through drawing. Campers will learn how to draw with a graphics tablet, take screen recordings, audio recordings, and use video editing software to turn their drawings into a dynamic video.

Learning Process and Outcomes

Storytelling within a medium. How can you convey plot and character with simple drawings? How can you simplify your story to make it finishable? What tone of narration works with your video. What makes videos capture your attention? Also gain video editing skills.

Take-Home Creations

A pretty cool video (we hope!)
