In this collaborative youth summer camp, kids will work together to create a concept, storyboard, and use different animation techniques to create a music video for a local portland band. The artist instructor will begin the week by showing examples of how animation can elevate music videos not only to inspire but to get a better sense of the campers’ interests and tastes so that they can best work as a team. By the end of the week, the campers will have a complete music animated music video to share with their friends and families.
