PUPILS at Great Sampford Primary School has taken possession of the latest in minicams which they will be using to further develop their animation skills.
Having taken part in an animation workshop led by Oscar Stringer (an Apple educator) where they were introduced to freeze frame animation, the pupils produced a number of short films and where thrilled with their results.
Headteacher Ian Pollard said he was delighted when a representative from the AMBO magazine contacted him to ask whether they could support the school in some way with a small donation to purchase equipment.
After much thought it was decided that the purchase of the new cameras and associated software would be a great way to continue to encourage the children to develop their movie making skills.
