After two and 1/2 months of singing, storyboarding, animating, filming and editing
we are finally ready to release our long awaited for and completely amazing new Fugleflick, "Allow us to Illustrate". These 10 filmmakers took on the challenge of explaining the importance of illustrations and their connection to literacy in this upbeat and entertaining short video. This group was a part of beta testing the new Green Screen app by DOINK. They planned the film to fully harness the power of this amazing app as they drew illustrations in the DOINK animation app and backgrounds in sketchbook express to layer all together with live footage filmed before our classroom green screen. It's amazing how simple it was for students to interact with their art and animation via this app. Watch the final movie below. They also have a karaoke page where you can sing along with the music and lyrics.
Filmmaking is a wonderful exercise in collaboration, problem-solving, and creativity.
Watch the behind the scenes video to get a glimpse of the work that went into this production. You can learn more about making Fugleflicks by watching my K12 Online presentation here as well.
Don't forget that you can celebrate this film by getting the gear via our online art gallery on Artsonia. Every purchase gives back to our classroom.
We are currently trying to raise money for a 1:1 iPad art room.
If you rather donate to our iPad campaign directly please use this link to our Donor's Choose project. Thank you!
Who would have thought that learning could be so fun. My first graders had a blast singing along to the REPEAT Fugleflicks video about color, line, and shape pattern with my magic glowing wand.
Have some Karaoke fun yourself with this link.
There are other songs on my wiki too set up for Karaoke.
If you do...share your videos of students singing with us
