Villaways Youth Make Short Films
In June, youth from our Up & Rooted Program in Villaways took a field trip to the National Film Board to create their own stop motion animation short films. Accompanied by acclaimed film maker Charles Officer youth spent the day learning the ins and outs of film-making including scripting, storyboarding and animation. The kids created their very own short film using a variety of materials and professional animation equipment! Choosing between either clay or paper-cut out methods they were able to accomplish a 10 second film during their workshop.
When asked what the workshop experience was like, one of the participants Rebekah Kelly exclaimed that ”It was awesome!“ Thank you NFB and all involved for this great opportunity. You can watch all the short films here.
