French II – Stop Motion Puss in Boots

French II students have been reading, and learning vocabulary from, the Puss in Boots story and this year were set the task to turn the story into a stop motion animation, using a combination of Stop Motion Studio and iMovie on their iPads.

Working from a storyboard they used hand-drawn backgrounds and paper stick puppets to film the different scenes frame by frame. They then exported this into iMovie to add their own voice-overs recorded in French, and titles and transitions.

Here are a few shots of the students filming, with one person taking the multiple still images on the iPad and the others moving the paper characters as per each scene:

And the complete movie is embedded below:
