End-of-term update: Scratch Art and Animation
Schools: Sunnybank State School, Redeemer Lutheran College, Middle Park State School
End-of-term: Term 1, 2018
Course: Scratch – Art and Animation
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
Make your own project
In Week 7, students made their own project with the guidance of our tutors.
Week 8 is Demo Day, students get time to finish their projects and then present their projects in front of our parent and student audience.
