Animation Shorts Showcase 8th Grade Creativity


At the start of the last trimester of the year, a group of 8th graders showed up for their project time of choice: Computer Animation. Almost from the start, the small room that the group was confined to began to rapidly fill with the creativity that students had been keeping within them, some even for years. You see, this course gave the participants the means to create actual cartoons, complete with sound, credits, and a doorway to an infinite vacuum waiting to be filled by any of the creative ideas that students either came up with on the spot or had had in their heads coming into the class. The results were better than what anyone could’ve expected to come out of such a short working time, and every member of the class was able to produce a wonderful animation, now on display here on the Corner. ~by Nigel Law
