Animation at Hillcrest Community School

For two weeks in December of 2016, I did a residency at Hillcrest Community School in Bloomington, MN through COMPAS. I worked with all three kindergarten classes. We discovered how to make Stop Motion Animation and created some movies. We also experimented with an early form of animation called the Thaumatrope, and even made some flipbooks.

Here is a documentary I made about the residency and some of the films created by the students.
