Reflection on the Digital Art Workshop: Day 4

Day Four was a very productive day working on The Ugly Pumpkin with our two students. Both students are sort of quiet individuals, but make up for it in the amount of work they can accomplish. We referred to our storyboard often and had few wrinkles to work out. In fact, the students worked so well that about half way through the time we had they were already learning how to work with their animation in iMovie. They both really enjoyed "making a movie" and liked manipulating what they'd already created in another format in this new one. Unfortunately, the filters and sounds effects are rather enticing and it was difficult at times to regroup the focus. However, after allowing some time to familiarize with the program, they both quickly returned to the task at hand and made some very good choices with the material.
