This year some of our students will be creating animations, videos or games for a National Competition. This year’s theme is REFLECTION.
This is a video that I made to show my students an example of addressing the theme.
I shot this with my iPhone. Airdrop files to iPad. Edit in iMovie. Export to Dropbox, You Tube and Vimeo.
The actors and voices, are my daughter and her friend, both called Violet.
It is down at the local creek one lazy morning. The sounds are from nature.
Screen It! is an annual competition run by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. Over the last few years children with some experience in Animation and a passion for it from Years 3 to 6 have been encouraged to consider being involved in this long term project.
This years theme is: Reflection. Children are encouraged to complete a 1 to 3 minute animation on this general theme.
Projects are due in the middle of September.
Meetings with interested students will take place with staff mentors being provided for each participant.
