About the Club

The Film Making & Stop Animation Club provides an introduction to the basic skills of Stop Motion Animation, working with plasticine, lego and a variety of other objects. Children use laptops and cameras to create short Stop Motion Animation clips using “I Can Animate” software. Clips are then developed further by adding sound, graphics, transitions and other effects. Children will also use film making software such as Digital Movie Creator and Windows Movie Maker to create their own films. Microphone fun and sound effects will all be taught plus much much more!

Digital Movie Creator

Digital Blue Movie Creator is an easy-to-use digital video camera and movie-making software package that allows children and adults to use the PC to script and star in their own feature movies. Digital Movie Creator invites children and adults to direct, film, star in and edit their own movies – all with the power of their PCs. Be your own director with this incredibly versatile movie maker! Digital Movie Creator is perfect for the budding young director.

You can move the sections of the stick figure and easily create a chain of animation frames that can be previewed as you go.You can use more than one stick-figure in the animation, and even create your own stick figures using an easy to use visual editor that lets children assemble objects out of lines and circles.

Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker is a piece of Windows software that enables children to create home movies and slide shows on their computers, complete with professional-looking titles, transitions, effects, music, and even narration.

I Can Animate
