Each Summer I run an animation art camp for interested students, as they need a good series or hours at a time in order to create an animation of any substance. In these art camps the students are taught how to create story boards which their animations are then based on. The drawings are then created using Photoshop or Procreate on Wacom drawing pads.
Once the drawings are created they are then uploaded into Director, where backing tunes and sound tracks are added. The final animation is then saved in QuickTime format and then uploaded into YouTube.
