Clay Animation Project
Follow the link to see a lesson on studying the history of clay animation:
"The main objective here was to create a visual story without words. In this unit we studied the history and process of clay animation. The class took one day out and watched a Wallace and Grommit movie. Working in groups of three, we then developed our plot with the help of a storyboard. After the storyboard was filled out we split up jobs in our groups. One or two of us designed our characters out of clay and someone designed a setting. We all took turns photographing and rearranging the clay characters. The next step took us to the lab where we edited and animated our claymation story."
