LEGO® Show Time Workshop 1: Story Creating
January 12, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm$30
What’s more fun for kids than playing with LEGO’s? — Bringing LEGO figures to life through stop-motion animation! Using LEGO’s StoryStarter program and ZU3D animation software, kids 7 – 12 years of age will work in teams of 2 or 3 to create animated videos that can be shared with friends and family. This three-session workshop will be held at the digiSTORY Academy at 3210 Michigan Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri.
Students who complete the stop-motion animation requirements will earn a LEGO Show Time badge from LRNG-KC:
This workshop consists of three weekly 1.5 hour sessions:
Here’s a summary of what students will learn in each of the three workshop sessions:
Thursday, Jan. 12th: 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
- Story Creating: Learners will explore the fundamentals of how moving pictures are created by assembling a flipbook. They will then work with their team to create a 6-stage storyboard comic page that features photos of their LEGO® characters in action.
Thursday, Jan. 19th: 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
- Story Producing: Learners will use a webcam and simple lighting with a laptop to capture stop-motion frames of their LEGO® characters and story props. Learner teams will use Zu3D animation software to create their full LEGO® stop-motion story.
Thursday, Jan. 26th: 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
- Story Sharing: Learners will add features to their LEGO® story that add fun for their audiences: titles, crawling credits, word balloons, sound effects and background music. They will post their completed story to digiSTORY KC’s YouTube account where their animation can be shared with family and friends.
Workshop Fee: $30.00 (plus Eventbrite fee) covers all three sessions. (Scholarships are available for kids from families facing financial hardship). By registering for the Session 1: Story Creating session, you will automatically be registered for this session.
