Another new class we tried out this MEA break was LEGO Animation on the Moon. You can see some photos and a test set up from a week or two ago on this blog. From checking in with the teachers, there were some challenges using iMovie for chroma keying but the projects were great.
This is beautiful. It reminds me of what could come from days and days of our Shadow Puppet Animation rather than just the couple of hours. Another Shadow Puppet Animation class for adults is coming up in the next few months, stay tuned for details.
Reel Grrls, a youth media organization in Seattle, posted this practice project from their animation workshop this week. From their comments, they took video footage from toy commercials with the audio removed, and had the students add audio back in as a way to practice/test out this skill. Such a great idea!
Inspired by Making After Hours, I made this shadow puppet animation.
