Comcast gives us claymation!
March 21st, 2012
On March 13th, ten members from the Seidman and Steil Clubs finished Clay and Game Tech projects with the help of a $10,000 grant from Comcast. Using claymation, which is an animation process using clay figures that are moved and filmed using stop motion photography, members created storyboards and sets, clay figure characters, filmed, and edited their own movies.
“The best part of claymation was molding the clay into real characters and seeing them come to life,” said Club member Ivy Kelley.
Using game design software like “Scratch” to assist in building games and movies, staff members Jamie Prawdzik and Ashley Copier introduced Club members to this new program to complete several digital pieces of art.
To recognize participants, both Clubs will attend a private film screening and pizza party at the Steil Club on Friday, March 23rd at 1pm. Watch more videos at our YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/bgcgrandrapids.
