Thank Geoff for all of these good ideas.

Also for sound editing on the PC there's a great piece of shareware ($30)
called Goldwave. It's got an unbelievable number of features for the
price. Check it out at:

>scan each into the computer. Each image is then imported into Premiere and
>'stretched' to occupy a few seconds. Each student then records their voice
>bits and soundfx in SoundEdit. Those clips are imported into Premiere's
>audiotracks. From there it is just a matter of re-stretching the still

>images and moving the audio around until the timing of everything looks and
>sounds right. The 'animatic' becomes the blueprint for the rest of the work.
