This afternoon we had a screening of the Stage 3 Claymation films that our students have been working on in Art Cave with Jane and Alex. Students worked in groups to create a short animation of 15 seconds in length, using different backdrops, clay, playdoh, and other props. Students used the stop-motion animation technique of taking 5 frames per second, then playing the images in order to create the sense of movement on the screen. Some groups even went beyond that and added sound effects and music to their short animations. Below is a compilation of all our claymation films.
