The Sun that Lost its Shine
by Great Wilbraham Primary School
- All the children wrote scripts for a film to make, and they then voted on which story was their favourite and therefore the one they would turn into a film.
- They chose The Sun that Lost its Shine, written by Lilly M, and decided the best way to make the film would be to use stop motion animation.
- All the children worked in small groups to animate different scenes, and they then added all the scenes together.
- This resulted in a mix of different techniques used to animate the film.
- The children chose the music from the 'Incompetech' website which is royalty-free.
- All the children worked together to make the closing credits of the film.
- Guided and supported by Miss Fitzwilliam
An excellent animation film with a strong sense of visual impact and creative use of stop- frame.
The art work complements the story very well with good use of set, drawings, cut out and dialogue.
Great use of 3 different types of animation that gave a good flow, due to good variety.
Great voice performances and animation on the sun face.
The script supports a clear narrative and the atmosphere of the film brightens thematically towards the end
