Activity before next class:

Today we researched images and practiced collage animation! This week, record the dialogue you wrote for our first animated sequence (excerpt from script below). You can record it as a video, and we will detach the audio during our next class! 


Donald Duck (in his duck voice): Welcome to the In-And-Out-Burger "fly-thru"! May I take your order?

Bugs Bunny: Move it, Duck! 

Daffy Duck: I’m the star here, and I’ll take the order!

Roger Rabbit: No, I’ll take the order...


Donald Duck: That’s why I take the orders!

Activity before next class:

This week we talked about the difference between 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes and looked at both 2D and 3D animation. 

We experimented with very basic 2D animation in the Flipaclip app on my iPad. Your activity is to download the Flipaclip app onto your iPad and make a very simple, hand-drawn, animation. I loved your idea of drawing music notes that float across the page, but you can make whatever you want! There is also a tutorial for the app, here.

Our hand-drawn animation from class:

Experimenting with "live action" and animation together: 

The clip we watched from Bedknobs & Broomsticks

This week we added the dialogue you wrote into our first animation sequence (below) - the very beginning of your story. It's coming together great!
