Premiere! Our first big movie premiere! This was such a fun event! I didn't think that so many parents and siblings would come to this. It was great to mingle with the parents, talk with them about their kids and the hard work that they have done. Of course where is a party without food and drink! (that was a plus). We had activities for the families and students to do while they waited for everyone to arrive. There were three stations people could work on: stop-motion, chalk animation, and sand animation. The stop motion station used both "digital" materials and traditional art materials to spell out "Digital Workshop". The chalk animation said "Tales of Transformation". With both of the stations they used both additive and taking away elements to create animations that would be used on the DVDs the families would be receiving in the near future. The sand animation was just for play...plus who doesn't like playing in the sand! The viewings of all the stories of transformations were great. Everyone seemed to look seeing what everyone else had been working on for the last 4 weeks. What was also great about all of them was their styles were all different and they were all very creatively done. I think that it was really good to have the premiere on a different day than on the actual last day of the workshop. It would have been even harder to finish everything in time for that and would have been more stressful on everyone. All of them were amazing for the amount of time we really had to put all of these together. Everyone worked really hard and it paid off!
