Recently the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne hosted an exhibition by DreamWorks Animation - sharing many of their drawings, models, storyboards and design tools.
While wandering through the amazing displays and admiring the creativity of the many individuals who work together to create such wonderful entertainment, I stopped to look more closely at...
Craig Kellman, Zooster Shapes Study - DreamWorks Animation, 2005.
I couldn't help but think about how engaging this would be for our students as they learn about 2D shapes and 3D objects.
Real people doing real jobs... relating their work back to topics they would have studied in primary school.
What a great starting point for discussion and a great springboard for creative design!
Imagine what our students could come up with when presented with such an opportunity...
maybe there are some future animators amongst them already!
If you have any other suggestions to assist our students to make mathematical connections to the real world... please feel free to share!
