Our awesome animation

This clever creation was made by our talented tutor Siobhan.

The first half uses a technique called ‘pixilation’, which uses photographs to make it look as though things are moving in a slightly unnatural way (socks, clothes, books and teddies that pack themselves into the backpack).

The second half uses a piece of software that layers the different parts of the frame, which means you don’t need to redraw everything each time. In total, there are just under 200 frames!

Would your child like to make their own animation? Why don’t they come along to Siobhan’s Animation Day Course in December?

They can also have a go at home – check out ABCYA Animate!
