PROJECT BRIEF Client: 2-6 years old kids Unit Question: How can we entertain 2-6 year olds using simple animation? Design Brief: The little ones are boooored!

Do you think you can entertain a toddler with nothing but a camera and some play dough? Prove it! Time allow: 1 quarter Unit Objectives: Come up with a visually entertaining short film that will capture the attention of young children Explore different camera techniques, color choices, and music to achieve your goal Evaluate and justify the choice you’ve made based on how entertaining it is

INTRODUCTION Our client for this project will be the students in kindergarden in our school. The time for us to make this project is 5 weeks. The situation is that the little kids in kindergarden are bored. They’ve watched all the new movies, seen all the cartoon, had their parents read all the books, but they still want something new. We will research different kinds of animation and choose the most effective one

AREA OF INTERACTION I think the area of interaction for this project would be community and service, because I will need to entertain other people in the kindergarden, and if possible also entertain people of all ages. For me to do that I will also need to use my creativity, so I think this is also linked to human ingenuity.

ANSWER OF INTERVIEW 1. Funny one, the one that can make me laugh and enjoy. 2. No more than 5 minutes, because it would be to long and maybe it would be very boring. 3. Stickman, because the stickman that I watched on the internet are all funny, but sometimes violent. 4. yes if it is not violent monster, because it can make more effects with the monster. 5. I would rather sound effect, because sometimes it would be hard to find the music that match the visual. Monday, November 14, 2011


SUMMARY OF INTERVIEW We need to make this animation short and funny, so the audience can be entertain. I think in our design we will draw two stickman design, because everyone is more familiar to stickman so I think they like it. Even though we will put monsters inside, but I think we will need to make one design about the monster, and the other one no monster, so we will see which one is more effective. I would also need to download a lot of sound effects to match the visual.

IMPACT TO SOCIETY After I have made this animation, the kids in kindergarden will not be very bored, cause I have create something new that they maybe haven’t seen it before. If I made it too boring, then the kids will not be happy, cause its boring.

EXAMPLE THAT I FOUND ON YOUTUBE

http:// www.youtube.com/ watch? v=asBTY34YMp4 Michael Jackson vs Mr. Bean

Monday, November 14, 2011

This is a very famous animation with 5,584,251 views right now. I think this animation is famous because of the two super stars, one is Michael Jackson and the other one is Mr. Bean. I don’t think they got that much views because them, it is because of the story. This is a funny animation between the king of pop and the king of comedy. There is also no violence part in this making this animation funny. I found out that they don’t use any sound effect only music, but I think they can have a better effect with sound effect


HOW TO MAKE AN ANIMATION Prepare materials: iStopmotion or camera, clay. Start shooting animation. After we finish with the first picture, we need to move part of a object slightly in the direction you want it to travel and take another photo. After that we animate our photo, but iStopmotion will help us do that. We export it as a movie than put it in iMovie. In iMovie we start to put musics and sound effects inside.
