Film Makers In Action
Children in KS1 have been developing their film making skills with I Can Animate 2. This is a Stop-Motion Animation Package which can be used with little figures and special webcams to tell stories.
Hundreds of still images are taken then played back very fast. The film makers have to use the "onion skin" to ensure that they only move each figure a fraction each time they take an image. Many images are needed for just a few seconds of film so this requires lots of time and patience.
