Animation is a brilliant and innovative way to encourage children to develop and share their stories and ideas in a creative and original way. Children in Class 4 were introduced to Stop-Frame Animation and were challenged to create their own storyboards, characters and sets in a 2 week animation project. Using iPads, children worked together to arrange their characters and shoot their movie. Care was taken to ensure that character movements and actions were captured in tiny steps and photographed carefully. Children then edited and improved their animations, adjusting the colour, speed and adding music.
