My first session was awesome. It was hands on animation. We begun by watching some pieces for inspiration. Here are some of those sweet examples:
We split into group to work on our own separate pieces. My group took some chalk outside and a still digital camera. We created a storyboard and drew out several different frames...comic style. Then we took images of each frame, uploaded them to the animation program, and pushed play. 25 minutes. 5 first time animators. 1 free program. 30 seconds.
I'll upload it before the end of the weekend. I promise.
