In the film they talk about the positive and negative aspects of working in a partnership, their experiences at school and the Importance of ‘getting ideas out’. Within the film they demonstrate the process of creating a new animated character for their own website. This clip is from the BBC series What is Art? A collection of short films from the BBC following a day in the life of seven UK-based artists and designers For our What is Art? playlist: For our Art and Design playlist: For Class Clips users, the original reference for the clip was p03pd06y. ===================== Teaching Art and Design? The clip is an appealing one for KS3. It would prove a very good starting point and inspiration for a project with this age group. The pupils could be set a brief to design a character that would advertise a specific company, with the teacher providing a range of options. The clip could be shown to demonstrate how the idea for a character develops. The pupils could create thumbnail sketches of possible characters, researching the relevant theme to look at source material for inspiration, before creating a final design. They could use either traditional animation techniques, such as a flickbook or series of drawings to be photographed and animated, or use a photo manipulation software programme if the school has such facilities. This clip will be relevant for teaching Art and Design at KS3 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 3rd Level in Scotland. ===================== For more clips from other subjects at the BBC Teach YouTube channel: More from BBC Learning Zone: More resources from BBC Bitesize: ===================== Subscribe to create your own customised playlists, and get notified about our latest clips.
