New stop motion animations are now available @ www.youtube.com/user/tonypickford. Created by Yr 2 B.Ed students, I have added some sound effects and music using iMovie. Visit Oscar Stringer's Animation for Education website for examples and practical advice on creating animations with children. The Film Education website is also a useful starting point, giving an overview of different types and approaches to animation. There is also a useful video on Teacher's TV which shows a stop motion animation project with key stage 2 children.
