OK Go Project

In July, we are offering two mini camps for students between age 12 and 21. They are intended for those who want to learn semi-professional level techniques, using Dragonframe Stop-motion, Final Cut Pro, and a Canon DSLR. In session 2, we will take on the amazing music video of OK Go, Here It Goes Again. We will recreate a part of the video, faithfully reproducing frame by frame in a technique called rotoscoping.

This is not for the faint of heart. We will be spending hours just to make a few seconds of footage. We will analyze every second of the original clip, make sets, plan the shoot, set up lighting and rigs. The good news is that we won’t spend any time editing sounds!

This is an on-going project we will be working on for the next year or two, with different groups of students. Each group decides on the material, technique, and style of the animation. Some may want to do it in clay, while others may want to interpret it with pipe cleaners. With each new group, the clip will become longer and richer with all different interpretations.

Students will learn the workflow of stop-motion animation, basics of filmmaking, become familiar with Dragonframe Stopmotion and Final Cut Pro X, and will have an HD animation clip to prove it.

The class is limited to four, so register early.

Dates: Monday, July 14 through Thursday, July 17

Time: 9:30am to 3:30pm

Tuition: $280 (a deposit of $50 is required at the time of registration)
