Short animations inspired by “The Magic Piano ” & Lang Lang

The year 6 classes at Poplar Primary school have also been studying “The Magic Piano”. After watching the film and listening to several etudes they had a go at creating their own animations. I think that they have done brilliantly. Firstly, they didn’t have very long to prepare it and secondly they only had iPad to use between the whole class. These films are really a rough draft and hopefully the children will get a chance to have another go.

What do you think? I am sure that the children at Poplar would love to read your comments.

  9. We like the monster and freestyle one,its really awsome the films.We love it you only had 10mins.Mabye one day you can work in the filming studios

      

  10. We think that all of them were good but Peggie 3 was the best because it was really cool with the waves and when it sank. It was really good although they only had 10 minutes to complete the small clip.

      

  11. We think that Peggie 3 was the best.It was very well animated and from what we have heard; it was made in 5-10 minutes. Which is amazing for such a great animation.

      

  12. my friend and i both really enjoyed the animations especially the freestyle one

      

  13. OMG.??

    The monster Chopin was magnificant because from what i’ve heard they only had 10 minutes to pull this off.

  14. Wow, such a variety of ideas and all with quite different musical interpretations. I love them. Well done year 6, I am aware how much work goes into animations and am impressed!

      

  15. Love it, some really great different approaches here. I especially like the fluffy Chopin one, nice simple idea to use that photo as the backdrop. And Monster Chopin is pretty dramatic!
