Students in the grade 10 art class felt what it was like to be Tim Burton today at the National Film Board of Canada. With the help of an NFB team leader, they created two very short animations with characters made out of clay and a device called a “lunch box” camera. Drawing Disney characters, scratching on 16mm film and drawing 12-frame zoetrope strips, students came equipped with a lot of information on the different types of classic animation techniques. Enjoy the short! Don’t blink or you’ll miss them.
