The ‘Cool clips’ series was a great opportunity for the Townsville community to get insight into creating paper cut stop motion animation using iPads, stands for setting up a mini studio and the NFB StopMo Studio App. The age group ranged from 13 to 60+ but consisted mostly of teenage boys who embraced the combination of digital technology and the creative freedom they were offered. Images were either directly printed out from the internet or cut out of old magazines and added to the artistic stories.
We had several small teams who created a divers range of short clips related to our ‘climate change’ theme. The clips all look fantastic and just needed the right audio. Finding the right tune and making sure it has the perfect length is a science in itself… We did our best to match the vibe of the audio with the visuals.
