During March break, Jay Jay went to Bricks 4 Kidz's Stop Motion Camp. He joined Aiden, Brayden, Justin and one other new friend in this camp. What they will learn? They learn how to shoot a stop motion animation movie using Legos.
This is the scene they build. So, the theme is "Nature". And you can see that it is blue sky with some clouds. In a garden.
Every movie must have a scrip. This is their scripts.
Oh, got clouds, got tree, got snake, got crocodile, got ...
Here is the story. One day, a man went to Bukit Timah hill, and he saw a snake, a crocodile and a bat. Then, the snake bite, the man fight with the snake. Then, the bat is the judge. Then, the crocodile cheers for the snake. The man fight the snake with the axe. Then, the snake spat venom then, the man get injured. he call the police, and the police say I will kill the snake….
…. Interesting story… so, how to shoot such movie???
Oh… a web cam to shoot the photos. So, stop motion animation is really taking the photos and move the props bit by bit, and you slowly play back the photos you taken at the rate of 20 frames per second. So, you really need to shoot a lot of photos.
The web cam hook up to the laptop and have a software for editing...
The kids are enjoying the movie.
May I present the movie that Jay Jay and Justin and Brayden did. Quite fun to watch too. Well done Jay Jay!
The kids presenting their work.
And there is a certificate of achievement. Cool!
Bricks 4 Kidz is on 4th floor at the Grand Stand. Previously called Turf City.
On the 2nd day, parents come and listen to them presenting their movie.
Then, parents and kids enjoy the movie.
Well done Jay! Here is your Lego. (Actually I wanted the minifig, i.e. R2D2, Anakin and Like Skywalker. If you buy the real minifig, can cost up to $25-$30 a piece. I also wanted the X-Wing too.
But my underage worker says, Nope. I have to build the Helicopter first. hahahaha
