Group Spoken Word Animation/Motion Graphic Project
Class / large group projects can be very difficult. I suggest you do exactly what Shane Koyczan, the creator of this powerful anti-bullying piece did. He wrote a long spoken word piece speaking out against the damaging effects of bullying, and then handed that over to many. many different animators. Each animator took on one segment of the piece, and created the visuals in their own style and media. It is at once both eclectic and diverse. And, it is so powerful, so strong. A class could take this on - write and record the spoken word piece and then animate segments, in groups or as individuals, and then assemble the whole piece at the end. Voila! A successful whole class project. I have indicated a few subject areas that are obvious - others could use this idea as well.
