2-Week 3D Animation Summer Camp for Kids

Learn 3D Animation at NYFA

During NYFA’s 2-Week 3D Animation Camp for kids, students aged 10-13 will build on the one-week curriculum, learning the fundamentals of 3D animation, as well as the storytelling segment of the animation pipeline. Over the course of two weeks, students will fully engage with Disney’s 12 principles of animation and learn how they can bring their own original creations to life. Rather than relying solely on lectures and demos to convey skills to students, kids at our animation camp are given access to industry-standard animation equipment and encouraged to explore.

Program Description

Camp Name: 2 -Week 3D Animation Camp for Kids

In the 2-Week 3D Animation Camp, campers learn classic animation exercises such as pitching a ball and swinging a hammer to learn squash and stretch, weight and muscle tension, overlapping action, anticipation, and follow-through. Each camper writes, directs, and animates their own scene using our pre-rigged character models and sets so they can focus on the creative aspects of story development — and on applying their new animation skills. During the 3D animation summer camp, students will take classes in Intro to Storytelling, Creating Reference Footage, Using Reference Footage, Basic Rendering, Basic Editing, 12 Principles of Animation, Walk Cycles, Acting for Animators, Giving Weight and Muscle to a Character’s Movement, Timing and Spacing, Key Frames, and Graph Editor.
