Animation movie

Making an animation mini-movie is one of the most creative things you can design with coding. Each student makes their own animation movie over 2 weeks.

Let’s use this animation movie as an example: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/116001774/#editor

Before we start coding up an animation movie, we first need to sketch up a storyboard. Here is one we made earlier.

We learn to:

  • Time conversations
  • Change direction and size of sprites to indicate depth
  • Turn sprites around
  • Show and hide objects in each scene
  • Show text in the title screen and the end screen
  • Use broadcast to change scenes

Use various techniques to create visual techniques
