Step into Spring over these school holidays exploring fun animation techniques creating a wonderful wall projection animation.

Choose a simple printable template such as a person walking, a butterfly flying, or a blooming flower, and draw your own design over the top. The template is broken into eight images, creating a short moving animation.

A traceable guide in animation is a useful element to ensure realistic movements and proportions are correct for animated objects. Think of a guide like a skeleton for a person, they are the same on the inside, but are different and unique on the outside.

The final drawing with the 8 images will be photographed and sent to BRAG to be animated and included in a collaborative springtime project. The video will be projected at night into the BRAG/Library forecourt on the new outdoor projector.

Materials needed:  

  • black (or dark coloured) texta, pen, or pencil. A regular graphite/lead pencil will also work. (rubber if you want to use)
  • Pieces of paper
  • Camera (or phone with a camera)
  • Optional: Computer, printer and scanner.
