Freedom Techno Dance

#1 took a broadcasting class this semester, and one of their projects was to make a stop-motion film.  Their teacher played several of the films immediately following the eighth grade promotion ceremony last night, and it was fun--and even a little amazing--to see the students' work.  Their teacher posted all the films on his YouTube channel today, minus the end credits with the students' names.  Check them all out here: brockolee02.

I know I'm biased, but #1's group film was my favorite.  Her BFF's group did a fun film, too.  Here they are for your viewing pleasure.

#1 is the lead dancer is white.  The lead dancer in black is the girl who choreographed the dance moves--and one of my Mock Trial students!  The music is "Techno Jeep" by Julian Smith.

In this film, #1's BFF is the girl swimming underwater.  They created animation with a green screen, and filmed the stop motion in front of the screen.  Very creative!  I like the music they chose, but I don't know what it's called.

If you liked those, be sure to see the other videos too.  "Water Vs. Fire" and "The Worst Circus" are good!
