Brainstorming and selecting
We got this idea to take the Halloween challenge and to make a very short scary movie, so i asked the kids which characters they wanted to build and which kind of scenography they would have liked.
In this first step they got many many ideas, then together we choose some characters and some scene.
Planning the animation
Before to realize the scenography or the characters we worked to well define how we wanted to animate them with lights or motions.
Is better to know precisely what you wanna have as a final result before to build it:
The class was divided in little groups, each one of them with a precise task.
Assembling and filming
When all the pieces were ready with colors, light or motions, we put together the whole scenario and decided the steps of the movie:
scene 1 - the entry
scene 2 - the pumpkin
Then I assigned roles to some of the kids so that light and movements could take the right place inside the story.
Editing the movie
This is some I did, they are too little for now to make it by their own. Then i asked my husband to create a simple soundtrack to add ;)
