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:
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.
