Year 8 Welcome

Director of Progress & Achievement Year 8 - Mr A Thomas

Assistant Director of Progress & Achievement Year 8 - Miss A Martin 

After completing a successful first year at Wildern, I’d like to welcome back all Year 8 students to Wildern. At the end of Year 7 our final WAD showed that 92% of students in the year group have an attitude of Good or Excellent, which was a fantastic achievement. This is an important year for all students with pathways due to be chosen as well as everyone working hard towards achieving their end of Key Stage 3 levels. Many trips, such as the one to the Belgium and French WW1 Battlefields are already being organised for Year 8 students.

I’d like to welcome Ms Howlett, Ms Gunderson and Ms Welsh to the Year 8 team, they have settled in well and are already bringing their expertise to the students in their tutor groups. I would also like to welcome Ms Martin to the role of Assistant Director of Progress and Achievement and look forward to working with her this year.

8B2 – Mr Dymock
8B3 – Mr Fenner

We will be pleased to discuss any student’s conduct or progress at any time. Parents are welcome to make contact with us as soon as any concern arises.

 

There are four possibilities:

 

1) If a particular subject concerns you, write or telephone to ask the teacher to contact you and talk over the matter when convenient. (Please feel free to use the student planner.) Your son/daughter should then show their class teacher your message.
2) If your concern is more general or one of a social matter, write or telephone to ask the Group Tutor to contact you to arrange a time to talk the matter over.
3) If you have a serious concern or issue to raise you might like to contact the Director of Progress and Achievement.
4) If for any reason you wish to talk to a Senior Member of staff directly, contact the school either by telephone or by writing and a Senior Teacher will arrange to see you as soon as possible and, in an emergency, at very short notice.

The Headteacher is always pleased to meet with parents. Should you find that after contact with other staff your concern remains, please contact her. We are all concerned with helping individuals.

Please note it is important that you make an appointment, this will avoid an unnecessary waste of your time. Phones are manned between the hours of 8am and 3.30pm. Messages can be left on the automated system.

We will always endeavour to return all calls within 24 hours and respond to letters within 5 working days.

Introduction

In the following tutorials we will be covering flash and primary stop frame animation. The tutorials will
cover the following programmes that are compatible with both mac and window systems, Flash CS and
I can animate. If you do not have access to this software than there is plenty of applications that are
free to download or use onlin
In the following tutorials we will be covering tools available to you to create animations.
The tutorials will cover the following programmes that are compatible with both Mac and Windows systems: Adobe Flash and iCanAnimate.
If you do not have access to this software than there is plenty of applications that are free to download or used online.

What is stop frame animation?

 

Stop motion is used for many animation productions using physical objects rather than images of people, as with traditional animation. An object will be photographed, moved slightly, and then photographed again. When the pictures are played back in normal speed the object will appear to move by itself.

This process is used for many productions, for example, clay animations such as Chicken Run and Wallace and Gromit, as well as animated movies which use poseable figures, such as The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach.

What is Flash/key frame animation?

 

Adobe Flash (formerly Macromedia Flash) is a multimedia platform used to add animation, video, and interactivity to Web pages. Flash is frequently used for advertisements and games. More recently, it has been positioned as a tool for "Rich Internet Applications".

Flash manipulates vector and raster graphics to provide animation of text, drawings, and still images. It supports bidirectional streaming of audio and video, and it can capture user input via mouse, keyboard, microphone, and camera. Flash contains an Object-oriented language called ActionScript.

Flash content may be displayed on various computer systems and devices, using Adobe Flash Player, which is available free for common Web browsers, some mobile phones and a few other electronic devices (using Flash Lite).

 

A key frame in animation and filmmaking is a drawing that defines the starting and ending points of any smooth transition, referred to as Tweening in Flash. They are called "frames" because their position in time is measured inframe on a strip of film. A sequence of keyframes defines which movement the spectator will see, whereas the position of the keyframes on the film, video or animation defines the timing of the movement. Because only two or three keyframes over the span of a second do not create the illusion of movement, the remaining frames are filled with inbetweens.

How can animation be used in the class room?

 

Perhaps the best thing about animation is that pupils learn so much without realising it. To them, the lesson is a fun way to create their own film, but they actually absorb a huge amount of information while they work.

 

Animation takes a good deal of planning, often through storyboarding and group discussions, so pupils have to learn to be organised and methodical about their work, understand the subject matter well and be able to offer and take constructive criticism.

 

It’s an engaging process that incorporates creativity, technological skills and teamwork, to produce unique creations and unforgettable lessons.

 

As plastacine is so versitile and only really limited by the imagaination of the user any subject matter is

possible to dipict, I have seen many excellent animations for science lessons to show osmosis and cell

replication etc.

 

Many students find the practical appraoch to learning offered by stopframe animation helps them to retain the information and a more fun learning process rather than just learning from a text book.

 

Examples of Stop Frame animation - Design Your Own Planet - Primary School Pupils from Wildern Feeder Schools using iCanAnimate.

 

(Film attached at the bottom of article)


A classic Flash animation - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgwxXKsZhAo

 

I normally use Flash to make interactive teaching aids using the button functions and add movie clips to enhance the learning experiance.

 

Here is an example for Geography of a teaching aid about the Tsunami.

Story boarding

Story boarding is a very good way to decide which shots you need and information you want to portray in your animation.


Creating a storyboard will help you plan your animation out shot by shot. You can make changes to your storyboard before you start animating, instead of changing your mind later. You will also be able to talk about your animation and show your storyboard to other people to get feedback on your ideas.


Most commonly, storyboards are drawn in pen or pencil. If you don't like to draw you can also take photos, cut out pictures from magazines, or use a computer to make your storyboards. Keep in mind that your drawings don't have to be fancy! In fact, you want to spend just a few minutes drawing each frame. Use basic shapes, stick figures, and simple backgrounds. If you draw your storyboard frames on index cards,you can rearrange them to move parts of the the story around.

 

Storyboard Language

 

  • Establishing Shot - This is used to set a scene and is normally a wide angle shot, comprising of a location or a group of people, before cutting into a closer shot.
  • Mid Shot - Torso to head.
  • Close Up - A certain body part is framed to show significance, i.e. some one who is talking head. Or is performing a certain action maybe their hands or feet. This is used to engage the viewer or show detailed action.
  • Extreme Close Up - Used to convey mood/atmosphere i.e. Shot of some ones eyes.
  • Two Shot - It is very effective to cut between these shots. A two shot can either be a form of a medium shot that has two actors standing or sitting next to each other or an over-the-shoulder shot where one actor's back or profile is closer to the camera than the other actor facing the camera. A two shot can save time when you have a dialogue scene between two actors by having them both in the frame as they carry on their conversation.
  • High and Low Angle Shots - When you shoot from a high angle, your subjects look smaller and therefore insignificant. In contrast, you shoot a low angle from below your subject's height — as low as the ground. Low angles tend to make subjects look bigger and more powerful. A character appears intimidating/supier if you use a low-angle shot.
  • Dutch Shot - a cinematic tactic often used to portray the psychological uneasiness or tension in the subject being filmed. A Dutch angle is achieved by tilting the camera off to the side so that the shot is composed with the horizon at an angle to the bottom of the frame.
  • Dissolve - A transition between two shots, where one shot fades away and simultaneously another shot fades in.
  • Fade - A transition from a shot to black where the image gradually becomes darker is a Fade Out; or from black where the image gradually becomes brighter is a Fade In.
  • Jump Cut - A rapid, jerky transition from one frame to the next, either disrupting the flow of time or movement within a scene or making an abrupt transition from one scene to another.
  • Pan - A steady, sweeping movement from one point in a scene to another.
  • POV (point of view shot) - A shot which is understood to be seen from the point of view of a character within the scene.
  • Tilt - Using a camera on a tripod, the camera moves up or down to follow the action.
  • Zoom - Use of the camera lens to move closely towards the subject.

It is a good idea to jot down, voice over, music etc under your drawings.

Once your storyboard is complete than you are ready to film.
