Watch these videos for inspiration (I particularly like the human skateboard)

Then think about what you want to do.

Start by:

Forming a group of 2 to 3 people.

  • brainstorming ideas
  • creating a plot
  • Writing a storyline
  • consider what material to use which can include:
  1. Clay
  2. Plasticine
  3. Toys
  4. People
  •  Then borrow a camera and take pictures – lots of pictures
  • Put pictures into video editing program (preferably Premiere) but you can use Movie Maker.
  • Watch tutorials on Lynda.com on Premiere

Resources
Premiere Pro CS4 Essential Training with Antony Bolante

Requirements:
All videos must have a soundtrack. This can be voices or it can be music

A credit sequence clearly showing who worked on the film and what their roles were

Presentation:
Videos to be shown to your classmates and all other year level digital media students
If they are any good they will go on my blog for future students to admire!

Animations

Next term I’d like you to start working with video. Watch the first half of first animation to get an idea of how we can do stop motion animation.

And, I’ve put this 3D animation in because I think it is a good example of social activism.
