As part of an activity week on SPACE the children have created their own stop-go animations in the style of Wallace and Gromit.
They bulit a simple set using cardboard and a moonscape piture. They used lego and plasticine to make space men, aliens and spacecraft.
A digital camera with mini tripod was used to take about 200 images. Space sound effects were created (using percussion intruments) and recorded using digital sound recorders. Other sounds were downloaded from the internet: televisiontunes.com
Everything was put together on 'Windows movie maker'. The children had great fun adding film style credits. The finished projects were saved as media files. An example below - see more on our events blog.
