Creative Summer Day Camps for Kids

Budaörs Animation Base and Creative Space, aka BABtér for the fourth time organizes its popular summer day camps and the application has already started. This year, in addition to the well-known animation and graphic design camps, we are also opening two new camps: music and film camps!

Kids can enjoy the 300 square meters of BABtér, most importantly our studios which are equipped with animation and graphic tools and machines, and in our courtyard, we will do creative and entertaining games and activities with them, too. In our screening hall, we will show the kids the best children’s films from the Primanima World Festival of First Animations, short films which can rarely be seen on television.

The summer camps were developed from our weekly Primanima Animation Fun Zone programme and from our creative weekly courses at BABtér. The goal of the organizers and experienced art educators is that kids could immerse themselves in an intense creative work for a week and to help them discover the joy of art. To join the day camps it is not necessary to have previous art, music or film knowledge as more experienced peers and art teachers are joining to help the kids who have yet to discover the world of animation, graphic arts music or film.

COVID-19 information: if we are unable to hold the summer camps due to state regulations, we will fully refund the advance payment for the camp. Nevertheless, we recommend an early application because places can fill up quickly.

ANIMATION DAY CAMP

During the one-week camp, children will learn a variety of animation techniques, including puppet, plasticine, lego, paper-cut, and digital animation. In our cozy studio, they can make animated scenes and also make their first animated short film. The extremely diverse world of animation provides a base for the development of children’s creative abilities. We use modern Canon cameras and Apple computers for filming, and we help them learn how to use digital tools creatively. At the same time tracing them back to the love of traditional materials. On the afternoon of the last day, we will screen the films made during the summer camp for the children and their parents, which is always a cheerful way to end the week. Pics from the last summer’s camp can be found here.

FILM DAY CAMP

Our film camps are for young people who want to try themselves out in different aspects of filmmaking and are interested in screenwriting, acting, cinematography, sound editing, directing post-production (editing, lighting), or production.

We offer film camps for different age groups. smallBABfilmlab is for 8-11 year-olds, Junior A for 12-15 year-olds, and Junior B for 16-20 year-olds. During the five-day camp, participants learn about screenwriting techniques and have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of other activities as well. During the camp, crews are formed based on the participants’ interests, the genre they would like to work in, and their personalities. They can work as screenwriters, cinematographers, sound designers, editors, or even actors.

Each crew consisting of 6-8 team members (director, cinematographer, sound, editor/lighting, production manager, actors) creates their own films with the guidance of professional filmmakers. Two crews can be accommodated per camp in addition to the actors.

Films will be a maximum of 15 minutes in length. Participants will be able to choose from several film genres, depending on their age. Drama, thriller, action, comedy, and fantasy will be the main focus.

Participants also have the opportunity to try themselves out in different roles. If a participant is curious about more than one field, the possibilities are discussed at the beginning of camp and are designed to match their desires as much as possible. For example, if you apply to be a director, you can write the film as well as act in it. The short films will be presented on a big screen for an audience during the last day of the camp.
