Winter Vacation Animation Camp at FCTV

Falmouth Community Television is offering its popular “Winter Vacation Animation Camp” for children aged six to fourteen. The program will be offered over a four-day period during the winter break from school, Tuesday through Friday, February 18-21. The morning session, from 9am to Noon is designed for children ages 6-9, and the afternoon session from 1pm to 4pm is designed for children ages 10-14.

In this popular workshop series, children learn to make short animated videos using “claymation” stop-motion techniques. The workshops give children a chance to explore their creativity and hone their storytelling skills while working in teams to create clay puppets, write scripts, then animate their characters using various digital techniques in the Falmouth Community Media Center’s new animation suite and learning lab. These videos are then replayed on FCTV Public Channel 13 and on FCTV’s website at www.fctv.org.

The fee for this camp is $85.00 for FCTV members and $120.00 for non-members.

For more information and to register for either of these programs, call FCTV at 508-457-0800 or email allen@fctv.org. This program made possible in part by a grant from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod.
