Below are the techniques LET'S ANIMATE uses while conducting workshops.
Stop-motion is a form of animation where objects, models or characters are moved in small stages and then photographed; when these photographs are played back the eye sees them so quickly that it gives the illusion of movement.
models, character or objects are made from plasticine, moved frame by frame and captured in front of the camera, this can be done in a 2D or 3D way.
Brick worlds and minifigure stories are used for animating, creating some great effects with Lego.
Characters, props and sets are drawn, then cut-out creating collaged scenes for animating.
Human people! are moved just like puppets and captured in front of a camera, old style special effects
we're done in this way!
Found objects are collected and used to build scenes for animating.
Animation is a powerful process that enables, engages and develops learning through a visual and creative language for all ages groups.
Strengthening problem solving, collaboration, creativity, imaginative investigation and
co-operation, whilst supporting many areas of the curriculum, maths, literacy, art, science, ICT, history, drama and media, meaning opportunities of cross-curricular learning are infinite.
