Room 3, St Thomas Aquinas Winton. Year 7 and 8. Teacher: Joy Quinlan.
For our Bible stories inquiry in Term 3, we chose a Bible story, in groups, to retell and turn into a clamation style animation using the app ‘Smoovie’ on the iPads.
After we had chosen and read our bible story, we retold it in our own words. We used a storyboard planner to write our retells onto, as we broke each part into a different scene. We also drew a basic outline of what each scene would look like.
Once our storyboards were complete, we had to sort out each member’s role. We had backgrounds to find and print, characters and props to be made from playdough and voice recordings to record, using the easi-speak microphones.
The ‘filming’ process takes awhile. The filming is not really filming, as each scene is made up of a series of photos that are all put together at a certain speed.
Once all of the scenes were ready, we had to put them together with our voice recordings, using moviemaker on the computer. We then had to split up scenes to slow them down or speed them up, making sure that our footage and recording for each scene were the same length.
