These two stop-motion animations are the result of a 5th grade collaborative art project during the 2011-2012 academic year, led by Shanti Bhavan Volunteer, Felicia Cleveland.
After learning the principles of making a stop-motion animation–imagine a flip-book using photos on the computer–each student designed their own story-board. Two were selected to be made into animations and both, coincidentally, were about pirates!
The 5th graders worked together in two teams to make the backgrounds, characters and props by hand and then transformed the photographs into the films with the help of Felicia.
It was a long, complicated process, and they worked extremely hard — well done 5th graders! We hope you enjoy these short animations!
