Year 5 students from South Wonston took part in a 6-week Media Animation workshop in our Media Suite, on Tuesday afternoons this term. The course introduced the use of film production equipment as well as let the students access new and exciting areas of Media.

They learnt about Stop-Motion Animation, then planned and produced storyboards as small groups for their own 30 second animated films. They created sets and characters using paper, plastacine and Lego and then filmed it using the cameras and iMac computers. They then spent some time editing, where they learnt how to add special effects, voiceovers, sounds and music.

The 15 students were surprised how long the process of animation took, but enjoyed bringing their characters to life!
