One of the Year 9 boys has been making 'films' using his DER laptop computer. They're animated, with black stick figures and silhouettes of other items. He showed me one yesterday.
Kid: Look at my film, miss!
(film runs for a couple of minutes, stick figures running up and down various obstacles, and shooting guns at frequent intervals)
That's a lot of frames you have in there!
Kid: Yes, 150 of them (a fair amount of dedicated work for him to have done, nice to be able to praise him for it)
So how do you put it together? - must have taken you a while
Kid: I download the images from the internet then put it together myself.
Well done! You know, though, all that shooting (I look kinda sad) - couldn't you make your next one about fluffy bunnies, and daisies, and sunshine???
Kid: Oh, I've done one with bunnies. I had a four wheel drive run them over after about twenty seconds.
The happy life of teacher librarians. Maybe bunnies weren't a good suggestion...!!!
