LEGO Robotics for Aspiring Filmmakers (Rising 5th to 7th Grade)
Do you love LEGOs and robots? Do you like to take pictures and film the world around you? Have you ever wondered how movie trailers are made? Discover how to make your movie trailer at MODAâ€™s LEGO Robotics for Aspiring Filmmakers half-day camp! Please note this camp is for rising 5th to 7th grade students who have attended a previous MODA LEGO Mindstorms NXT Robotics summer camp.
In this camp, participants will go behind the scenes and experience the filmmaking process first-hand. Using LEGO Robotics, budding filmmakers will build, prototype and design robots to star as characters in their movies. They will code and develop their robots to move, interact, and respond to different scenes and in the world around them. .
Young filmmakers will collaborate to make their own storyboard and set for their trailers using LEGOs, Kâ€™Nex, and other tools. They will practice and adopt designer mindsets through rapid prototyping, iteration, and collaboration. They will brainstorm ways to create, build, and develop their robotic creations, and refine them based on the challenges that present themselves throughout the filming process. Campers will have to think like directors in order to overcome obstacles that could interfere with filming.
They will make their directorial debut by shooting the scenes of their trailer using GoPros attached to their robots to capture incredible sights and angles! At the end of the week, campers will be introduced to Filmora - a free film editing software, where they will explore how to add music, create voiceovers, and edit their scenes into a final cut!
Join us again later in the summer for a movie premiere at MODA, complete with yummy snacks. Following the premiere, each camper will leave with a copy of their film to take home.
