Don’t miss the new SIG course Animated Storytelling! Animation is a movie-making technique that uses a series of computer drawings, paintings, handmade puppets, 3-D models, or practically anything to create the illusion of movement through a series of captured images.
In Animated Storytelling, students will learn the fundamentals of animation through fun activities such as cartooning and making zoetropes and flipbooks. They can bring their very own toys to class, make puppets or 3D playdough characters, to animate movement and communicate entertaining stories.
They will explore the use of technology by learning how to use cameras, tripods, and online applications, to capture dozens of images, record sound, and create a stop-motion production. Students will sample the jobs of scriptwriters, directors, producers, and animators and bring their imagination to life!
