Last week our Elementary School had it’s annual International Day celebration. It’s a fabulous day where we come together and celebrate our differences and similarities. This year’s theme was One Day One World. Our clever Art Specialists, Paz Molina & Trish Neubrand came up with a mural idea that would ensure that ALL the ES students could contribute too.
What Did We Decide To Do
All of the ES students contributed to a large mural during their art times. As the physical items for the mural were made and added to the mural, we decided to create a special time-lapse of everyone’s effort.
How Did We Do It?
It took just over a week for the mural to slowly come together. Using the iPad app iMotionHD we set the iPad2 up each day to capture the putting together of the mural. iMotionHD has a free version and it is good but the paid version allows you to export – so we purchased the paid version – this has been a worthwhile investment as it makes exporting finished projects a breeze!
Since we created this stop-motion movie over a number of days, it was very important to:
- mark out (using masking tape) the placement of the iPad (on the table)
- mark out the placement of the table the iPad sat on, and
- mark out the placement of the Mural
This ensured that each time we captured an art session, the differences in capture were minimal.
