1. Hangout Introduction

Transcript

Hey!

Welcome to the hangout activity!

Before you get started in Scratch today, here is some inspiration from student animator Bruna Berford at the Academy of Art University.

This video uses stop-motion animation, which requires moving an object a tiny amount, taking a picture, and repeating that process over and over again.

All these pictures together create the illusion that the object is moving.

Some students have even created their own stop motion animation using Scratch.

Today, you'll use similar techniques to animate two characters using functions.

Stop motion animation uses photos, but your animation will use vector graphics.

You'll animate the characters’ emotions to show how they are feeling as they carry on their conversation.
