Stop-go Space Animations

As part of SPACE WEEK Mr Brook's activity was a Stop-go animation based on the moon. The children had to make some plasticine and lego models in front of a moonscape.

They then had to take a series of digital photos following the movements of their models. The aim was to take about 200 pictures in order to create a story of over 20 seconds.

The pictures were transfered to a computer. Using windows movie maker and some sound effects a short film was created. The finished film was saved as a media file.

You can see some of the films below. They are great fun!
