Students Get Animated at the HVCA

Calling artists of all ages to join the 7th annual Animation Camp taught by award winning cinematographer and media artist John Prusak and founder of non-profit Digital Arts, Film & Television (D.A.F.T) program.

The HVCA is offering two distinct camps this year.

Week One will be an intensive concentration on creating the story and building a storyboard that will help to bring your animated short to life.

Week Two will be a fast paced adventure where students learn all aspects of creating an animated short: storyboarding, directing, drawing, and filming.

Participants that attend both weeks will enjoy a modified program that gives additional advanced projects the second week. The classes are designed to encourage collaboration and to accommodate students of all abilities at HVCA, 205 W. Livingston Road in Highland, Michigan.

Students will receive a DVD of the animation shorts created and will be the special guests at the 2013 premier of the films. Select student work will be sent on to be juried for D.A.F.T.’s Michigan Film Festival that occurs annually at the DIA in downtown Detroit.


John Prusak, the lead instructor, has taught video and animation to students of all ages for more than 30 years; he has facilitated numerous workshops with a team of knowledgeable animators. John has worked on noted films and television shows in Michigan and Hollywood, winning numerous awards for his work.


The classes are open to for those 12 and up (including adults); it takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.  Week one runs August 12-16 and week two runs August 19-23. Tuition is $250 per week, and all supplies are provided.
