This week Room 5 went to Capital E to do an animation session in the media lab. First we walked there in buddies, and those buddies were our partners for the whole session. We were welcomed by a friendly instructor named Sam. First we sat at the front on wheelie chairs, and Sam told us we were going to have to earn our tablet licences. First we did a maze with the tablet pen (it was HARD), and then Sam called us back and he all gave us our invisible tablet licences. Then, with our buddy, we went on a program called Animationish. We used wiggledoodleish to write our names and we used 3 frames and we don't recommend watching them if you are epileptic. We then came back and Sam taught us to use flipbookish to make a ball bounce. First we would draw a picture of a ball and then we would duplicate the frame move it a little bit and rotate it repeat. But when the ball hit the ground we would squish it a little bit on the opposite side and then Sam let our imaginations run free and make our own animation. Here are the the ones made by the bloggers.
