The Great Human FlipBook Challenge Reflection

In technology class, we made a FlipBook animation video before planning to make our tutorials. Some people also call it stop motion, but it doesn’t really matter to me. This project was super fun and we had lots of great ideas come out. We had to do this entire project in a total of 50 minutes.

  • 10 minutes to plan in teams of 3-4 people
  • 20 minutes to take pictures and act out flipbook
  • 20 minutes to edit in iMovie

Our team, me, Alex, Ryu and William, decided to do a scene where we had to take down a horse that was over controlled. Coincidently, Ryu brought a horse mask so it was perfect for the act we were going to do.

Here’s the flipbook video we made:

During this project, I learned that creating flipbooks are really hard work. It takes a lot of time even just make a one minute flipbook and needs a huge amount of effort to put in. Although taking a video might be shorter than taking so many pictures can be a true fact, there are some things that make flipbooks special and I believe that it’s worth doing it. I like how there’s an space between each connected picture and how it’s shown into a video. Overall, I think making flipbooks are fun to do and gets you drawn into that world.
