Pupils in Years 3, 4 and 5 will become Script Writers, Directors & Producers (Will be Y4, 5 & 6 in September)
Using digital cameras and specialist software the children will learn how to use digital editing and ‘stop motion animation’ to create their own blockbuster!
Great ideas need planning – so start the creative journey with your kids now and help make their movie an epic tale!
Alongside the technical equipment, we will provide various props and toys but we understand that children may want to use their own favourite items to star in the movie. That’s no problem! We do have some guidance though which we hope you can share:
- Stop animation requires making items move, lots (and lots) of times over a small distance each frame. We suggest a maximum amount of 3 or 4 characters to star in a film. We’ll explain why this is better as part of the lessons.
- Backgrounds! Feel free to make some scenes at home, to add depth to your movie. We’ve seen the X-Factor stage and Wembley Stadium in our clubs before. It’s amazing what some coloured paper and a shoebox can become with a bit of time and attention!
Don’t have these? Don’t worry about it. As long as there’s enthusiasm and a will, we have a way!
We look forward to seeing your child at ComputerXplorers.
