So we began by analysing different parts of children’s animations thinking about the codes and conventions outlined in Ben Beaton’s TED lesson.
We watched several sections of animation in order to complete our organiser.
On completion, students analysed their information in a cross classifications chart.
We moved on to thinking about static images
The students used their understanding of codes and conventions in sending messages to their audience. They then worked as a team to plan using imindmap to create a story focused on plot, character, conflict, theme and setting. They then used iMovie trailer function to develop and create a number of images based on their story plan.
From this plan, they then each took one image and used a variety of apps to create a movie poster for their film that focused on character, font choice and placement, colour, etc. The following is one of the posters that was created using iPhoto and Phonto.
