My annual animation

Every year I tell myself I’m going to do more of this, b/c it’s just so much fun. Maybe this year’s the year to get my stop motion on more often? We’ll see. For now, here it is - my book pitch for school this time was Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. Enjoy!

Fun with a chalkboard + iMovie

I teach art at Elisabeth Irwin High School in Soho. Toward the end of very year there is an assembly where faculty get up in front of the school to pitch a book suggestion for summer reading. In the fall kids meet in book circle groups with the teacher whose book they picked for discussion. I've made it my tradition to do a stop-motion animation to pitch my book instead. Here's the one I presented the other day. I did it in a rush, but it was so fun to make. With more time I'd love to refine and really flesh it out. I'll post the ones I made in previous years later!
