Sunday Afternoons for Kids: Tabletop Moviemaking

Sunday Jan 22, 2012 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

Ages 10–14

Salvador Dalí and Orson Welles spent time creating diorama worlds, inventing stories, and performing them using miniature sets and tiny characters. Workshop attendees will use the same techniques to put together a short-film festival using a Tabletop Moviemaking kit and a variety of Apple iOS devices. Instructor Brick Maier developed tabletop moviemaking while on a Fulbright grant in Dublin in 2004.

The Hammer’s free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, are designed for groups of up to 20 students. Reservations are encouraged. Please visit workshops.826la.org or call 310-305-8418.

Hammer Kids and Family Flicks are made possible, in part, through the generosity of supporters and friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), a family fundraiser. Additional support is provided by the Westwood Neighborhood Council.
