    About

    This unit is designed to take learners from the beginnings of animation to the pinnacle of today’s animation processes. Students will begin by learning about, and (according to age group) create, Victorian motion toys such as thaumatropes, zoetropes, and flipbooks. Students will develop their own character and write a short story about this character. They will next develop a storyboard about the story, design sets, props, and even the character. Next, middle and high school aged students will learn about how to plan out shots, control lighting, and will shoot their own stop motion movies. Finally, these older students will learn how to take their images from the camera and use Windows Movie Maker to use their still images alongside royalty free music to create a finished stop motion film.

    About the Creator of this Wiki
    I'm Art teacher Amy Leigh Johnson, and I am passionate about using technology in the classroom. Awhile back, I noticed that in order to reach my students to the fullest capacity, I was often using examples from popular cartoons and animations. Suddenly I thought to myself: "Why aren't I using this huge knowledge base to help my students to create their own animations?!" So, I did. And, I created this wiki so that you can too. You can learn more about me by visiting my website: www.amyleighjohnson.com and/or you can view what I am currently up to in my classroom by visiting my blog: ArtfulArtsyAmy.
