Student Animators Abound in Multimedia Design
Last trimester, students were hard at work creating their own original animated shorts using Flash. They began the project with storyboards and the seed of an idea. Storyboards were refined, sketches created, and elements were loaded into a computer animation program called Flash. Finally, the students employed their own unique graphic design and brought their original characters to life.
Multimedia Design is an elective in the Middle School that encourages students to create digital narratives in a variety of styles and media forms. The first trimester is focused on animation in Flash and Sound Design. Later in the year, students learn programming and design their own video games as well as projects in video production and digital music.
