Summary

#animChefs

Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and mobile devices are turning 10 years old. Elementary kids have grown up in a world where cameras, social sharing, and video content are at their fingertips. Unfortunately, media education is largely a "nice extra" in kids media education. The outcome of this session is to frame media production as a basic literacy via stop motion animation project work. Using traditional animation concepts combined with mobile devices, an educator without film or animation background can facilitate the production of meaningful stories using sound and motion. A short stop motion project will be produced live with audience participation.
