Square bullet Activities

  • Teach the basics of photography and movie techniques.
  • Teach animation techniques:

    build a drawing table to work from

    develop story boards for sequential outlines.

  • Select a theme (e.g., day in the life of a village child, a myth, history).
  • Develop the theme.
  • Consider animation styles that might best convey the story successfully (i.e., clay [Pixilation], drawing, painting, real-life tracing, or any combination).
  • The animation process might be an extended process. Consider working in groups on all aspects of the illustration. (Walt Disney never had one person doing all the drawings.)

Square bullet Resources

  • any super 8 with single shot capabilities (you can also do animation with video but through a slightly different process)
  • a drawing table for filming; some lights
  • a framing easel; some drawing materials
  • Coynik, David. (1974). Movie Making: A Work Text for 8mm
  • Coynik, David. (1976). Film: Real to Reel

Variations

  • Sound is a nice addition.
  • Have students design a course for the next class. They can make it simple, perhaps bilingual.
