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:
