Stars in the making

Letting their imagination run wild was the order of the day for 23 children who attended Adelaide Plains Council’s library school holiday workshop on Tuesday, April 16.

Held at the Two Wells Uniting Church hall the Lego animation session was facilitated by Cameron Edser of GooRoo Animation

Cameron introduced the group to different types of Stop Animation including a claymation he had made called Animal Instincts (check it out on YouTube).

He then gave a hands on demonstration of Lego animation, where he displayed how to set up a scene, move the lego characters and most importantly how to use the app – Stop Motion.

There is a free version available for anyone willing to give it a go.

The children then got to go create their own movie magic.

The three-hour session was broken up with breaks to show other animation movies including Lego Ghostbusters.

The children learned how to add music, sound effects, audio and a title screen to their creations.

The afternoon ended with a premiere showing of everybody’s creations, which is available for viewing now on YouTube.
