Next workshop was the stop motion. We had only black and white paint. First we tried to come up with a story. Well, it wasn’t quite finished when we started painting but the outline was there. We were living next to the grave yard and the island people believe in all sorts of spirits, so clearly the story had to be a ghost story!
To work! Youngest participant: 3 years old! Oh, and by the way we never got to see any parents, it was always the same gang of kids showing up, anxious to see what kind of fun things we would do next. And they all took care of each other.
Our narrators: Dylan, Robert (assistent director 2) and James-Earl with his beautiful smile from a toothpaste commercial.The result!
