Studio You

The club formerly known as Anime met today.  Our previous brainstorming meeting showed two areas of interest - video games and movie making.  Studio You might be a better name for this group!
The large crowd of students today viewed some possible options.


Like playing video games?  It is time for you to design them!

Video Production

There are many possibilities for this option:

Stop Motion with Clay. A recent example is The Pirates! Band of Misfits.

Our first attempts might be a little less polished. Here is the first film by a 6th grade team from my old school in North Carolina.

Stop motion can also be made with Lego characters or other action figures.  Here is a great example shared with the group by Joel from Neighborhood 53 at Creek (Mrs. Miner/Mrs. Pickering). Notice how Joel uses music to set the mood, pacing, and action of the film.

Films using puppets are another great video production style.  The muppets are one of the best know examples.

Our first films might look like this version of Little Red Riding Hood.
