Today I had the honor of talking to kids at the Boys & Girls Club in Chico about stop-motion animation. We watched Wormholes and discussed how it, and other stop-motion films were made. I even had the chance to look at their claymation projects and help out a bit.
Something that was truly amazing for me was seeing how every one of these kids were so creative and full of amazing suggestions. Their imaginations were going a million miles a minute and they even helped me finally name the character from wormholes - "Eyeless Adam". Unfortunately as kids get older they start to worry about what other's think and tend to shy away from this outward display of creativity. Everyone at The Boys & Girls Club are doing a great job of nurturing creativity and expression. I can't wait to see what these kids do next.
