The Foundations of Technology class have been learning about stop motion and how computer animated movies are created. They learned the history in the making of "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and how Disney "Frozen" came to be. Did you know it took 70 years before Frozen got into production and it too over 600 people and 2.5 years to make? The class also learned different roles in creating an animated movie and were able to apply it to their own stop motion assignment. They learned movie effects and editing that they can add to make their movie more real like. The groups had to create their own Halloween stop motion video.
