Below is the PowerPoint for this week. If you have already drawn your favourite cartoon character you do not need to do that again ( just skip slide 1). You can send us photographs of your characters. (Purple Mash blog or class email address.)
This week you are going to produce a storyboard for your cut out animation. The background is going to stay the same for your short animation. Think about where this might be. You could set it in a jungle, zoo, playground, classroom, space or anywhere you choose. Last week you will have designed your main character however you may like another character in your story (have a maximum of 2 ). Now use the storyboard below to plan your animation - keep it simple.
Week 3 and 4
Below is the PowerPoint for week 3 ( make your background) and week 4 ( make your characters). Work through it at your own pace. For the links to work, when you open up the PowerPoint, you need to click on the slideshow and then from beginning or current slide.
If you have a Macbook or Ipad you will need to click on this PowerPoint then copy to Keynote. The links to the videos etc will then work through Keynote when played.
Week 5 and 6
Over the course of these 2 weeks you are going to make your short animation film by using 2animate on Purple Mash.
The PowerPoint below will show you how to do this. We are looking forward to seeing these.
