Media Arts: Animating the Alphabet

In media arts classes we are working on creating an alphabet animation using hand drawn frames. Each student will create a 50 frame animation based on a letter they are given and morph at least 3 different images that begin with that letter into their sequence (Letter A: Apples, Alligators, Andrew Jackson). All of the letter sequences will be combined into a full animation of the alphabet which can be used to teach elementary school students next year, posted online, and submitted into film festivals.

Here's an example of a finished storyboard

Here's an example of a finished name credit and below is an example of what the final individual animated segment looks like.
