On November 12, 2016, Fountaindale Public Library hosted the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them event. Wizards of all ages gathered and participated in the various activities that were available. At the end of the day, though, dark forces gathered and there was a mass breakout from the wizard prison Azkaban. Aurors were dispatched on the double, but many of the escaped wizards are still at large. Wanted posters are posted in all major cities and wizards are urged to remain vigilant!
Thank you to all the volunteers and staff that worked on this project and special thanks to all our patrons who participated in the event.
Join us for a fun-filled day in the wizarding world of 1920s New York before the highly anticipated Fantastic Beasts film hits theaters. Dress as your favorite witch or wizard and be prepared for a magical experience! Don’t miss this celebration of all things Harry Potter for wizards—and muggles—of all ages!
Studio 300 joins in on the celebration by placing you under arrest! Come down to the lower level between 2-3p.m. to have your very own Azkaban poster shot live on our Tricaster system. Witches and Wizards of all ages are welcome to participate.
In a world full of big dreams sometimes it’s the smallest details that may change your perspective. Or, at least, that’s what a macro lens can reveal. Recently, Studio 300 acquired the Tamron 60mm f2 macro lens, and, of course, we created a class for its debut. All of the patrons who participated in this hands-on class really enjoyed the extreme close encounters they had using the macro lens and a DSLR camera. Take a look at some of the great photos they took in the video below or by visiting our Flickr site.
Enjoy the results from the Fountaindale Public Library recent Tween and Teen Summer Camp focused on Video Production. Our Tween and Teen patrons conceived, storyboarded, videotaped, and edited these trailers for fictional films.
July 11th dawned bright and sunny, so the tweens set out on their photo adventure! During this Photo Bootcamp our young patrons learned about photo composition and using the rule of thirds to take better pictures. Their objective was to complete a photo scavenger hunt. Laughing and jumping, dancing and making silly faces, they spent the morning having fun while learning to be better photographers.
The afternoon was sweltering so as the heat index rose, the teens explored the library with its comfortable A/C. The teens learned how to compose pictures and to apply the rule of thirds. With their scavenger hunt they explored the four floors of Fountaindale Public Library.
Both groups did a phenomenal job and had fun while learning photography techniques. Take a look at some of the great photographs they took that day by visiting our Flickr site.
Enjoy the results from the Fountaindale Public Library recent Tween and Teen Summer Camp focused on Music and Sound. The Tween and Teen patrons rebuilt the soundtrack to a game trailer using recordings and sound effects.
Dads joined their daughters in Studio 300 for our inaugural digital date night program. The families worked together creating a variety of media projects: photography, Photoshop, TV production, podcasting, music, animation, and more. Enjoy these photos that highlight the evening’s activities.
Check out what the Tweens chat about in their very own television shows that they made themselves using Studio 300’s Tricaster TV production system. Their topics range from gymnastics and little sisters to their insight into presidential candidates. This was part of Fountaindale’s STEAM week.
Enjoy these short animations made by our Teen, Tween, and Adult patrons during our Computer Animation program at the Fountaindale Public Library’s Studio 300. They used the Stykz computer-based animation software to produce these basic videos.
