This stop-motion animation video was created by the students of Animation Station, one of 826CHI's amazing workshops. The Taco That Ate Everything is a terrifying reminder to eat healthy.

The first ever short film created by the students of 826chi.org for the October-November 2009 workshop "Action Jackson"
Throughout the workshop, students learned about screenwriting, scripting, special effects, sound, makeup, set design, costumes, location, cinematography and lighting. Each student assumed a specific role, largely deciding amongst themselves who would be in charge of what. Input from every single student made it into the final cut (so enjoy democracy at its finest!)
The first half of the workshop series dealt with familiarizing students with the various aspects of movie making while the second half was dedicated to filming and editing. A final session was held to screen the film for the students' families where copies of the short were given to each student.

This video was created by Lily and Wesley in our weeklong Film workshop. Students drew from a hat their genre and a prop. In this case, the genre was horror and the prop was the red ball. Students in the workshop spent one day on pre-production (writing their script and drawing their story boards), one day on production (shooting the film), and one day on post-production (editing the film).
In this summer workshop, our 1st and 2nd grade students updated the classic fairy tale, The Gingerbread Man. Students read the original story, learned about its important aspects, brainstormed ideas, and wrote an updated version the classic tale... oh, and ate gingerbread cookies! Each student wrote, illustrated, and recorded an individual part of our group story, and now, here it is for you to enjoy!
