A project by David Gran (of Carrot Revolution "fame")
What is Rotoball? Read this Art Education 2.0 entry by David Gran:
Introducing Rotoball: an international collaborative animation project
for high school students. Below you will find a brief project
description. For a comprehensive explanation of the project and more,
visit our Rotoball website.
What is it?:
1.Rotoball is a black ball that transforms into something different
for each person who comes into contact with it. The goal of the
project is to keep the ball going as long as possible.
2.Rotoball is a collaborative rotoscoped animation project for high
school students in which each student creates a 15 second segment of a
much longer animation. Its a unique opportunity to connect with other
students who are geographically distant.
Watch the original video:
By: Huntington High School Video 2&3 Students (2005)
(See video on Rotoball site)
Each animation must be exactly 15 seconds long.
The animation can be as creative as you'd like, but MUST contain the following:
1. You catching the ball from the left hand of the screen. 2. The ball
transforming in some way. 3. You interact with the transformed object.
4. The ball returning to normal.
5. The ball leaving the right hand part of the screen.
Beginning ...now! Start rolling!
