Have an unforgettable experience at the Museum of the Moving Image Summer Media Camp.
Spend your summer at the Museum, working with equipment and software to create your own animations, videos, and video games. At the end of each week, there will be a special showcase at the Museum, and you’ll get a copy of your work!
Each Camp runs one week. Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You can enroll in any or all of the sessions. With the exception of Movies 101, there are two sessions for each camp: an Intro section (for children ages 9 to 11) and a Studio section (for teens ages 12 and up). An advanced animation course is also available for campers who have already completed a week of animation camp.
Participants will explore the Museum’s one-of-a-kind exhibition, Behind the Screen, and complete a series of interactive experiences and hands-on workshops to learn about the magic of moviemaking. Ages 9-11 only.
Video Game Design
Participants will learn about the process of video game programming by hacking existing games, and designing their own elements such as characters, sets, and levels. For inspiration, campers will have a chance to play classic arcade games from the Museum’s collection.
Participants will create a series of short animated projects, exploring a variety of techniques and materials. Working in small production teams, everyone will then write, design, and animation an original project.
Campers who have previously participated in the Museum’s animation camp (in 2013 or prior) can take their skills to the next level. Participants will have a chance to refine existing techniques and practice new ones while working on a longer original project.
