RADIATE + CREATE

Animation, but make it stop motion!


If you have ever seen a Tim Burton or Wes Anderson movie, you have seen stop motion! This filmmaking technique requires a lot of time and effort, as well as a huge attention to detail. To make this kind of film, directors take hundreds to millions of individual photographs, or “frames,” of a certain setup. Some use pixelation, silhouettes, puppets, or cut-outs to illustrate a scene. But at Radiant, the kids are doing object animation with Legos!


After being inspired by Matt’s filmmaking, the little kids have been making their own stop-motion videos all week. They’ve been so focused on their projects that they are even choosing to use their freetime to continue filming. It seems like we may have to set up two movie theaters for the next showcase!




 

Radiant Films Update

by Matt (Director)


At the beginning of the week, I started filming the rest of my stop motion and successfully finished! With a confirmation from Ms. Jo, we will be showing the short stop motion film at Radiant this week.


On Friday morning, I had the idea of doing the famous mannequin challenge at Radiant. I was inspired by Ms. Vannesa’s acting class activity from last week, but it was a little bit different. I asked all the students and facilitators who wanted to participate to strike a pose. It was interesting to see what pose each person chose. I'm looking forward to trying more "challenges" in the coming weeks.
