Our Year’s 9 and 10 Graphic and Digital Design class has collaborated with Procreate, the best-selling digital illustration app for iOS, to deliver a ‘Back to Bones’ lesson on Digital Animation. Our Head of Expressive Arts, Dr. Louise Bloomfield, worked with Savage Interactives’ Learning Coordinator, Lauren Yates-Jones (Alumni ’14), to adapt the lesson for our curriculum.
Bringing Ideas to Life
To create a finished animation, students needed to integrate skills from video production to human anatomy. ‘Back to Bones’ refers to the students looking and thinking about joints in the human body and how we move, before thinking about the sequence and their character, filming their classmates moving and animating the sequence.
