Over the past few weeks I’ve been involved in making an animation with Year 1 children from Great Barr Primary School in Birmingham, as part of the CBSO‘s “Where the Wild Things Are” arts education project. Orchard School and NICE (National Institute of Conductive Education) are also involved in the project and are making music, songs, art and dance. It’s been excellent fun and we’ve all had a very interesting and enjoyable time making our films based on the story. On Monday 27th we’re having a big performance day at CBSO Centre with parents and friends coming to watch what we’ve made. The Great Barr children have been working with me to make the films and also with orchestra members Sally Morgan and Ian Ludford to make the musical accompaniment – which they will perform live on the day!
One of the things the children enjoyed best was making their Wild Things and Max characters, and they made some fantastic stuff, but they were also extremely good at animating and filming so very well done to all of them – looking forward to seeing you on Monday!!
And here’s the final film, with sound which we recorded at the performance… Well done everyone!
I’ve taken the photos down, but if you’re from Great Barr school and you’d like to see the photos back up get in touch via the Contact page. Thanks.
