My fifth graders came to art for their first day of Rotoscoping on their iPads. They plan to turn their little movie into an animation created by line drawings over each of the 300 or so still frames of this video (see at bottom of this post). As I watched them draw using our new styluses on the class set of iPads I captured an MC Escher moment where a hand draws a hand, but this time digitally. We hope that all 100 5th graders will each create three drawings that will all be combined into one digital animation. If it works out, we hope to enter it in Rotoball 2012.
Here is the animation video that they are planning to rotoscope. They designed it to loop over and over again so the 15 second animation could run endlessly.
