Clay Motion Studio is Housing Corporation of America’s (HCA) inaugural animation program. Residents at two Antelope Valley communities,
the Arbor at Palmdale & Village Pointe in Lancaster, worked to create a stop-motion film using a variety of art techniques and recycled materials to bring a story of their choosing to life. Participants learned the basics of filmmaking including narrative, storyboarding, set & prop design, photography & editing.
The subject matter of each film was collaboratively sourced from the participants’ own thoughts and concepts focusing on issues important to them and their communities. The culminating result are two short films that uniquely express the thoughts and art of budding local artists. Videos can be viewed here: Claymotion Winter 2015
