Curriculum as Becoming

Becky and I decided to create a puppet-like stop motion video for our digital story!  We debated a lot of options before we stuck to this idea.  One idea in particular was that we were going to create a song or a poem out of the tweets our classmates sent over the semester.  This became difficult because the #ecs200 hashtag didn’t show all of the tweets.  We ended up basing our story on the things we tweeted throughout the semester as a guideline.  This was our first experience with stop motion, so it was quite nerve wracking at first, but I think it turned out great!  You can tell in the beginning that it was more of a puppet-style type and near the end, it was more of a stop motion video, although the entire video was stop motion.  I realized that stop motion is very time consuming and requires a lot of work!  We first started out using an app called “Stop Motion Studio”, but then we just took pictures on my iPhone and transferred them onto iMovie through iPhoto!  I hope you enjoy the video!  We definitely worked very hard to finish it!
