Activities Week ICT

Year 8 students created an animated short film for their respective houses. 

 The theme was nature and students were encouraged to tell a story related to their house name; Diversity, Aspiration and Endeavour.

Characters were formed from modelling clay and backdrops were selected using locations around the school. Each film was initially storyboarded, students were given roles within teams, e.g. camera operator, director, animator etc. By making small movements to the characters the students realised the end
result would be more fluent. It turned out that a day and a half of shooting footage with GoPro cameras and tripods produced
less than a minute of actual video. Sound tracks and titles were added in the final edit before being presented to the rest
of the Year 8 students.
