VCUarts Kinetic Imaging Department is offering Animation Camp over a single, two-week session for rising 6th-8th graders. Campers will be led through the process of a variety of animation techniques, working with the animation camera and learning new computer skills. Working in the Kinetic Imaging animation studios, each camper will have the opportunity to plan and create their own animation. Their camp counselors and instructor have lots of experience and love to animate! Our student-teacher ratio is 5:1 to ensure learning, project development and fun. Campers will work independently and in small groups using digital cameras and computers in the studios. The animations will be screened for family members and friends on the last day of camp, June 30th, 2017.
Jane Samborski, Kinetic Imaging alumna and animator, will be the program instructor this year. Jane was the lead animator on the award-winning animation “My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea” (2016).
Jane Samborski is half the creative team at Slobs and Nags, an independent animation company. She is the lead animator of the feature film My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea which has shown internationally, including at the Toronto Film Festival, New York Film Festival, AFI Fest, and the Berlinale. Other works include Seraph, a 2013 Sundance selection, The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century for IFC, and a contribution to the anthology documentary The Film Ballad of Mamadada.
