Imagine is a new project to acquaint local kindergarten, primary and elementary school children with animated images and give them the means to make an animated film.


The goal of I-magine is for pupils to develop a culture in moving images, discover the creation process of an animated sequence and use a tablet to make a stop-motion animated sequence with sound.

Imagine is interesting for teachers as it allows them to create a transdisciplinary project with their pupils, work with a network of local skillsets, understand and adopt the mechanics of animated images and use digital tools for educational and artistic purposes.


Imagine has 4 stages:

  • a training session for the teachers to learn about the theory of animated images, creating a storyboard and using a tablet etc.
  • a visit to the Musée du film d’animation for pupils and teachers to discover the history of animated images
  • creating and making an animated sequence (writing the plot, creating the storyboard, producing the images using the iStopMotion app, recording the sound, pre-editing with the iMovie app)
  • final editing (post production by an animation professional)

12 schools from the department will be participating in this project, which has been developed in partnership with DSDEN 74, Canopé Haute-Savoie, CITIA and le Musée du film d’animation d’Annecy.

Imagine is taking over from Animage, which, during the course of its 9 years, involved 108 teachers and 2,250 school children.
