OMSI/Claymation® Class


In the OMSI/Claymation® week long summer class, students used clay and simple art materials to design and construct their own characters and sets. The Video Lunchbox replaced the 16mm format, allowing time to develop, edit,and reshoot as needed, giving students immediate feedback of their process and product. Instructors of the class included Carole Gurges (elementary educator in Wilsonville, Oregon - and Will Vinton Studios Interns Justin Myers, Liz Randall and Peter Bakke. In 1997, Mike McKinney (Will Vinton Studios Animator/Designer) was the lead instructor.
