Group C: Animation Short using Flash

First idea:

– girl bakes ginger bread cookies,

– they chill on a plate

– they talk about life is so “fresh” their full of “sprinkles” of joy.

– girl gets taken away by a hand.

– crumbs fall and boy ginger freaks out.

– santa reaches for another cookie



Updated:  when I went to school on friday it did not save what I had done on Thursday, so I was frustrated that it wouldn’t be done that day, because I only had one more scene to sketch out. So i gave up on that project because I will be too busy to finish it before christmas which I was planning on it because it was a festive theme for the holidays… 😦 oh well.


NEW IDEA : Update: Thursday December 23, 2010.

Snowboarding flash animation. independent project.

*tried downloading flash, but I had already downloaded the free trail last year, technology hates me 😦 ! so I created a new email and I think it’s letting me do the free trail again lets hope.

so my plan is :

scene 1: chair lift (stick people talking)

scene 2: starting down a hill

scene 3: hitting a rail.

scene 4: going over a jump

scene 5: wiping out

scene 6: waiting in line for the chair lift

Yup sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

im just trying to download flash now. so I thought I would do a blog post of my rough draft.


Christmas Checklist *update*




















The penny: Time to get rid of it


Pennies are a waste

We never use them. In fact, we have a baggie near the door, & when we get home we go through our pocket change & toss the pennies in the bag. Then we give it to our neighbourhood convenience store. It’s not worth my time and effort to collect and roll them, and the store owner appreciates them. I’ll bet it ends up being about $4 – $5 in total at the most, whereas this way we can help out a neighbourhood business. (Although I must admit I always pick them up for good luck 🙂

30. Zeitgeist 2010: Year in Review

Google has just rolled out their 2010 Zeitgeist year in review. When it comes to searching the internet for whatever you are looking for, you have a couple options, but Google has led the pack for many years. This fast paced search video highlights the most popular searches the world over. How the world searched indeed. Thankfully, they didn’t include most of my searches. You don’t even want to know.

proposal 2.

Idea: a still motion film , of life . And a college of own photos taken to create a cool image (reminder lion / st mikes portraits and school building) .

What communications technology skills will you be using in this project? Photography, Photoshop, premier, filming, …

How will this project be significantly different from the current projects listed? Make direct
comparisons? This project will be significantly different from the current projects listed because it is a combination i plan on do a photo with using photos within it. I have no idea if these type of thing has a name but i’ve seen it in my elementary school. They had photos of the students all tinted different colours and the photos were tiny and the big picture was a photo of our school. The direct comparison would be we didn’t do much photography this year minus the motion film , and yeah.

What technology is needed to complete this project? a computer is needed and my digital camera.

What kind of preparation work is needed for this project? Include research The preparation work needed for this project is to set up a certain idea to take a photo of. ill need to be aware of the weather and what I would like to shoot.

What is the scope of the project? The scope of the project is to show my point of view.

How many people are needed to meet the scope of the project? I will be able to do this all on my own, and maybe the help of my brother once to capture a certain photo.

Describe pre-production work needed to prepare for this project. Pre-production work needed to prepare for this project is to figure out what to take a photo of and get it all organized.

What will you do during production? I will be capturing photos, and editing them and printing photos and putting a still motion together.

What kinds of things will you be doing in post-production? Getting my photos together.

What will the final product look and sound like when it is done? Describe with regard to scope,
difficulty, output medium (print or screen, with or without sound) The final product will look like, a stop motion film of the photos capture to create a story of life. And there will be a bigger photo consisting of the tinier photos.

Be descriptive and specific.


Use, this website:

create a mosaic photo

Using the Grade 12 Photos from this year to create a grade 12 mossiac with the titans symbol and saying “grad 2011”.
