The Clip Club

Primary after-school club in East London, UK – we watch, talk about, shoot and edit short films and clips

Session 6: Creative animation + filming

In this session we watched some ‘How to’ videos to get some inspiration for our animations. We found some really good demonstrations on: how to make and animate a face and also how to animate water …. with transparent hair gel! There are lots of interesting well made Howcast videos here with short tutorials on how to make and animate a face etc. See the water one below…

and the face one:

This is what we tried making after watching the tutorials:

face2   face1

It’s interesting to see how some of the films we’ve been watching over the weeks have influenced our story choices. We saw the idea of being swallowed up by a screen in ‘Animatou’. It’s also great to see the old video game characters (like Pacman) back in action.

Some of us started making these clips to explain our activities:

Just for fun here are a few more great animations that relate to some of the above ideas:

A pacman one:

More animated water:

And a fun spaghetti one from famous animator PES:
