On day 3 of camp we reviewed the animations that the students made on Monday and Tuesday. We talked about what they accomplished so far and what they wanted to learn to do better. We brainstormed ideas on how to make smoother animations, such as keeping the camera and tripod still or marking positions with tape on the floor. Then the students practiced these skills by making the animation called “In Your Face.”
Then the students were given the goal of working together to create and animation that was longer than a few seconds and challenged their editing skills. The result was the animation called “In Other News.”
Today’s prompt was a scavenger hunt. Students were broken up into groups and given the following list of stop-motion exercises to complete:
- Give life to an inanimate object.
- Turn a person into someone else.
- Disappear and reappear while walking.
- Photobomb the other group.
- Float over a picnic table.
- Slide backward across grass or down a long hallway.
- Make a talking hand.
- Do something creative on the playground.
- Defy gravity or teleport on the hill.
