Methods of Production:
Digital Video Camera connected to Computer with frame capture software;
in this instance we used a discarded 6 year old eggshaped i-mac computer with BTV Pro Frame Capture software.
Digital Still camera- was also used to capture some frames of animation which were later sequenced on computer.
Initial flipbook and pixillation exercises were carried out over the first four weeks of the project to provide exposure to concepts of animation
and to provide time for assimilation of other learning and the gradual development of ideas for bug characters , sets and actions.
Dialogue and narration was recorded with a maximum of 1 to three takes.
Animated sequences were filmed with just one take within
a limited period of time to allow the maximum number of students to have a go.
Dialogue and narration was edited to remove mistakes and to combine the best of multiple takes.
Animation was re-timed as necessary and combined with extra digital compositing, effects and processing to better fit the recorded dialogue.
