Campers can become the king of kaiju or the master of mecha in a crash course that draws from history, technology, and the natural world to guide them in crafting and understanding giant monsters and robot movies. They practice skills in photography, drawing, and stop-motion animation inspired by the Smithsonian’s own paleoart and robots. Campers design their own giant monster or robot, dip their toes into film theory, and tell their own larger-than-life story as they make these giant beasts come to life for a Friday screening and exhibition.
