The Workshop: TKTC Stars young and old will have the opportunity to take part in creating their own ANIMATED SHORTS!! They will be able to create a story using animations and scripted voice overs. Kyle & TKTC STAFF will work extensively on how to create cartoon voices for each character! Accents, tone of voice, and emotional connection to the cartoon characters will be huge parts of this workshop! Each participant will have 2 hours each with TKTC and Shared Science. In these sessions they will be able to: -Design their own characters-Create backgrounds-Choose music-Create sound effects using online programming software! Throughout the week they will also get to learn "Scratch!" Scratch is a free creative computing program, developed at M.I.T., that introduces programming concepts and strategies to kids!

We will all get to feast on candy, sodas and popcorn as we watch the AMAZING ANIMATED SHORTS of all our talented and budding filmmakers!! Laptops will be provided, but kids may bring their own if they are able to connect to WiFi! CARTOON SHORT FILM FESTIVAL – FRIDAY, JUNE 24th @ 2:30PM!!
