Create your own “Stop Motion” Film at the Port Moody Station Museum

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  November 18, 2008

Port Moody, BC. November 18, 2008:  The Port Moody Station Museum kicks off its new partnership with Reel 2 Real on Sat. Nov. 29th.  Bring your children to an Open House at the Museum from Noon-3:30pm to experience creating animation first hand.  A professional animator and computer equipment with special software will be set up to allow children the opportunity to create a short stop motion animated film with paper cut outs.

The Open House launches the Port Moody Station Museum’s partnership with Reel 2 Real in providing the Animating History program to local grade 4-8 classes. In this program students create a 1-2min. animated piece of historical fiction about the building of the transcontinental railway.

“This is such an exciting opportunity for District #43 schools.” explains Rebecca Clarke, Programs Coordinator at the Port Moody Station Museum. “Having been involved with this program at other museums, I have watched students become immersed in animating their own characters. They are so proud when the day is over, to see the film created by their class.  It is a real testament to team work. Many teachers have told me how impressed they are when they see students who don’t usually get excited by history, really get involved.”

Located at 2734 Murray St., the Port Moody Station Museum is housed in an historic railway station and offers a variety of exhibits on Port Moody history as well as an authentic 1921 rail car.  Film For information on this and other exciting youth programs contact Rebecca Clarke at the Port Moody Station Museum at 604-939-1648 or email at programs.pmmuseum@telus.net The Museum is open Wednesday thru Sunday, Noon – 4pm.  Monday and Tuesday by appointment.  Admission by donation.  All proceeds go to support the Port Moody Heritage Society.

Reel 2 Real is a non-profit charity dedicated to showing the best in culturally diverse, authentic programming for youth by presenting media arts programming and the Reel 2 Real International Film Festival for Youth. For more information visit Reel 2 Real’s website at www.r2rfestival.org. (Note site was not working Nov 22 but might be working now.)
