A review from Islington Arts and Media School
I was thrilled when the Media department at Islington Arts and Media School asked whether they could use a HUE Animation kit in their Year 6 Open Evening. Find out what the teachers thought about HUE Animation in their review:
“There’s something contradictory about the idea that you can get instant gratification out of making an animation film, but that is precisely what HUE Animation Studio offers.
On a busy Year 6 Open evening at IAMS Media department, aspirational animators were clicking away creating dance scenes, fight scenes and fairly ambitious sequences, by diligently manipulating wooden manikins. They captured small movements frame by frame with one click of the mouse, lit only by classroom ceiling lights.
Wowed by the good quality camera, which has a focus ring, Jason, our AV technician gave the product the thumbs up and now we’re buying in a few kits for our year 11 students to complete Media animation coursework. It’s so simple. Plug in the kit and play – no extra add-ons.
The absence of too many distracting features cluttering the screen makes HUE Animation Studio an ideal capture tool, allowing students to concentrate their attention on the complex skill of manipulating objects that they have found or made themselves.
For post-production, students can export movies in Quick Time straight into iMovie for more advanced editing processes.
As an introduction to animation, HUE Animation Studio is a great way to discover the joy of creating and seeing the illusion of moving images in a manageable school time frame – whether it is one lesson or a school open evening.”
