What we did

In class 4OQ we decided to do plasticine animation in groups, to be precise our kagan groups. The software we used was I can animation our Emacs and Mac Minis. We could pick any story to animate, or make one up. For example Ethan the writer ( Tyreese co-writer ) made one up with sponge bob and the ginger bread man and Tyreese did Phineas and Ferb the haunted house episode.

We had to put tarpaulin on the carpet so no Plasticine got trod into the carpet. We had 1 and a half days to make plasticine  characters. We had lots of fun. The tables were moved so that the room was spread out and people had space. To get the plasticine we had to go to the desk, tell Mr Quinlan our teacher what we were getting and take it. There was also false baked eyes we could use. They were made out of something similar to Plasticine called Fimo, that you bake to make it hard.

I really enjoyed building the models,but that was extremely hard so was the picture taking.I think the best bit was the voices because it was the easiest and I got to do the the narration!!!!!!

What we could do to improve is to make it make sense   and to cut out the hands.I found the whole thing tricky because the parts kept falling of and the camera kept moving luckily we had the shadow on.

I learnt on how to make a good structure  and to make really good facial expressions. I learnt by doing the animation how hard the the makers of Wallace and Grommet and  the makers of post man pat work.
