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.
At two recent programs in Studio 300, our patrons tried their hand at different styles of animation. The first night they used paper cutouts and other craft supplies to make stop-motion animations. The second evening was spent in front of the computer using Stykz to make simple computer-based animations. Enjoy their hard work:
Both our Tween and Teen patrons got creative this week. In three different programs, they learned to make animations, bring dinosaurs to life, and tell a story in six seconds. Enjoy these results from their hard work:
Turn your Android smartphone or tablet into a mini-Studio 300 with a few well-chosen apps. This Summer Studio 300 offers three chances to learn about free (and inexpensive) apps that complement Studio 300 resources. The free class shares tips on the best photography, video, music, library, organizational and productivity tools, and more. So even when Studio 300 is closed, you can feed your creativity using these tools on your Android smartphone (or tablet). Later, you can finish what you started using Studio 300.
Animation is a filmmaking style that allows people of all ages to create whatever they can imagine. In the recent Stop Motion Animation program held at Studio 300, two patrons created their own fun videos using iStopmotion software, some paper, and their imaginations. Enjoy these two short animated films: “Exploding Man Eating Pizza” and “Caterpillar.”
If you’ve been to the movies or watched TV or saw a television commercial, you’ve probably seen Adobe After Effects in action. It is the go-to tool for video special effects. It is feature-rich software that can help you create many unique looks for your videos.
This time around it was our Teen patrons taking advantage of the Studio 300 Summer Animation Camp. Patrons in grades 7-12 learned about the animation art form and made several animated projects during the week-long camp. They experimented with different styles including pixilation, stop motion, and computer-based animation. Below are the results of their highly creative work:
The Fountaindale Public Library held its first Tweens Summer Animation Camp with help from Studio 300. Patrons in grades 4-6 learned the techniques and history of animation. During the week they explored different animation styles including pixilation, stop motion, and computer-based (using Stykz software). It’s always fun to share the hard work they did with the video below:
