Now that the summer is truly over and everyone is back to school, it’s fun to recall the amazing places we’ve been and the wonderful sights we’ve seen.
One way to really capture the memory of a holiday is by making a stop motion animation movie about it.
The process of making a stop motion animation movie not only teaches children about the basics of film-making but it also allows children to learn using the 21st century skills of creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. It can be used to reinforce learning in any subject right across the curriculum and the finished movies can be shared with family and friends.
We really loved the animation Elizabeth Atia and her family made after their holiday in Unst. Watch how a really good storyline, lovely artistic interpretation, importing a sound track and a creating your own voiceover helps to make a brilliant movie. Not only was the whole family involved but they also used several different animating techniques.
See if you can spot what they are.
We’d love to see the animations you have created about your own summer holidays!
