Our program will start by demonstrating how motion pictures and television are illusions that create the idea of motion. The children will then work hands-on producing animations on 35mm film and create tracings of animation cells on light boxes. At the end of the class, their films will be shown on a movie screen. We will explain the difference between line animation and stop-motion animation. The children will then produce their own stop-motion animation using pose-able figures. At the end of the class, their stop-motion animation will be shown on the movie screen. The students will then produce another stop-motion film using poseable dinosaurs on a movie-set. At the end of the class, the students will see their final stop-motion animation on a movie screen. The class will also be producing live green screen effects, where the students can see themselves inside a major motion picture film. Children will see themselves in a scene of the Harry Potter film. They will also be dressed in costume and use movie props, such as a flying broom. The students will also see themselves on a movie screen as they are riding a high-speed rollercoaster. We continue the green screen technology as the students see themselves inside the movie Jurassic Park. The children will be running from a T-Rex, hiding from Raptors, and feeding a Brontosaurs with a prop branch. We will discuss the animatronic effects used in movies, as we will present to the students our robot chimpanzee from our motion picture museum. Later, the students will create a stopmotion film using themselves as the special effects characters. They will then produce a movie special effects film using the techniques of stopfreeze, which was depicted in the television series Bewitched.
