LEGO Stop Motion Animation User Club

February 10, 2018

Saturday February 10th from 10:00 – 12:00 pm

This is our monthly Museum LEGO Stop Motion Animation “Users Club” gathering, under the guidance of instructor Jenna Marks.

Jenna Marks is an experimental and narrative filmmaker with a strong focus in animation. She graduated with her BFA from NSCAD in May of 2013 with a major in film. Directly following her graduation, Jenna was accepted into the National Film Board’s prestigious animation apprenticeship program; Hothouse, in Montreal.

LEGO Stop Motion Animators should bring a small bit of LEGO, as well as project ideas and storyboards that you would like to create on your IPods or IPads or thumb-drives (don’t forget your chargers). The software app that can be downloaded online is: ‘Stopmotion Studio’ from the iTunes App Store.

Suggestions for our upcoming season of LEGO Stop-Motion Animation work sessions:

Work with a small scene – everything you use should fit into a small shoebox
Plan your scene with 3-4 characters
Have a written story idea that has a beginning, middle and an end
Your theme could be a nautical story or land & sea story
Think about how the characters relate to each other

We will provide:

A background if you need one
Drawing paper and pencils for your story board

To register, please enroll in advance for this program by contacting Jeanne Church at or 424-7491

The cost is included with Museum admission (youth $5.15) or with your MMA or NSM Season Pass
