Braidhurst's pupils are already designing characters and started a few backgrounds. So far we have one view of the classroom and a bit of the magic cupboard. The story is developing nicely too, though it doesn't quite have an ending! See the older post for the storyboards.
Here we go!! Definitely a smashing film coming along!
WOW! Already had a great draft of an idea from the class at Braidhurst High. Here it is:
The kids are working on an idea where the teacher of an unruly class turns into the Hulk causing the kids to run into a cupboard only to appear in Narnia where they are confronted by Olaf the snowman (from Frozen) whom they kill. The teacher then wakes up and realises it was all a dream.
Can't wait to start seeing artwork......storyboards are already started.
Well, its January again and the only thing that gets me through the winter days is seeing the school groups in North Lanarkshire developing funky ideas for cartoons. Animation Jam work with the XL Groups within the high schools each year as part of the Princes Trust's 'Arts and Employability' program. We teach them how to make their own animated film and, with the support of their teachers, they finish it for an early April deadline.
I hope to post some of their ideas as they develop here.
