Project 1: Stop Motion Project for website
In this project, we are going to make an artistic stop motion project as a class, in which we are each going to animate different parts of a powerful quote. This is the quote with which we will be making our stop motion:
"Did you know the average distance walked by women and children in Asia and Africa to get clean drinking water is 3.7 miles?"
Notice the quotation has different colors in it. Each team is going to animate on their whiteboard, a different part of the quotation. Then, we will put them all together. Also, you will be expected to add something artistic and interesting to your animation. For example, if your section of the quote is "Did you know" then, it might be a cool idea to add a light bulb drawing. Or, if you have "to get clean drinking water", it might be cool to animate water pouring into a glass of water.
Your font must be legible, and easy to read. You may choose an artistic style for your font, but it must be approved first, and be very easy and clear to read.
As you are animating, please remember that sometimes you will have to take more than one picture, or duplicate a picture to give the audience time to read the quote. Also, make sure in your shot you can see ONLY the whiteboard, and make sure your hands or shadows aren't in your film.
Have fun and be creative!
