El Colegio - Thomas Ramirez - 3.0 hours

Class began on Wednesday this week and there were quite a few students that were done with their art credit. I also had some new students. We talked about the stop action film and I put the kids into groups and had them discuss their ideas. I also asked them to turn in a rough draft of their storyboards so i could get an idea of what they were wanting to make for their films. On Friday, I showed the kids a few examples of stop action films so they could get inspired for their project and also get some ideas. We were able to use the projector and watched four short stop action animations on youtube. The kids seemed very excited to begin working on their projects. Some of the challenges will be equipment usage and being able to show them the editing process very rapidly but thoroughly enough for them to understand it.
