Visiting the Mind Lab to learn about Animation

On Tuesday we had  our first session at the Mind Lab. We learned about animation using qstopmotion. This is a free download and is very easy to use. Our tutor was Josh and he talked about making a storyboard. We used props and play dough to make simple story.

Making play dough creations

 Discussing the best approach
 Planning ideas together
 Organising the props
Getting some expert advice

We were very pleased to have something to share after our session. We are looking forward to seeing what we will develop next week.
