Jordan’s Lego Stop Motion sequel from St Peter’s, Bray on Vimeo. Last year, Jordan’s first Stop Motion Movie was a huge success throughout the school. When it finished, he promised his fans that there would be a part two in the coming year. Ladies and gentlemen, here we have it, ‘Lex Returns’, Jordan’s long awaited sequel. It’s back and it’s bigger and better than ever. The usual ‘good guys’ like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Tutles, Superman, Aquaman and Wonderwoman are back to save the day. After a breakout from jail, all the villains...

3rd Class with the help of Mr. Kinsella and Ms. Byrne have been working really hard to create their very own Stop Motion videos. Stop motion is an animation technique to makes objects appear to move on their own. We decided to use Lego as our main prop as it one of our favorite things. We worked in groups of three to come up with characters, props and storylines for our animations. We moved the Lego and props in small increments between each frame creating the illusion of movement. We then played the series of frames as a continuous sequence to create our movies.  Here is our first stop motion...

Tommy has started a new trend for film-making. Cathal from 3rd class and Robert from 5th class are showcasing their excellent stop-motion films made at home today! They used Lego and a stop-motion app to create two videos. They plan to make another one using Cathal’s crane over the weekend. We’re really impressed by our students’ creativity!

It is lovely when students let us know about some of the amazing and creative things that they like to do in their spare time at home. We were absolutely delighted when Tommy Lang in 4th Class filled us in on the stop-motion animation videos that he like to make at home on his Nintendo 2DS. We were all looking forward to the new Lego movie coming out – now we’re thinking that we don’t need to see it as we have Tommy’s brilliant movie that is just incredible to watch. Well done Tommy, we’re so proud of you. Make sure you have a look and let him know what you think of...

After many months of learning about stop-motion animations, apps, lighting, sound, props and recording… here it is. Our complete Creative Schools Awards project in one massive blogpost! So… here it is! Our project has taken us four months to complete. We decided to use our love of ICT and Art in as creative and interesting a way as possible in putting together a stop-motion animation project. We got the idea as early in the year, during Culture Night 2013, our local theatre (The Mermaid) ran a number of events on the night, including children’s animation workshops. We in St. Peter’s...

He’s done it again! Tommy Lang in 4th Class has made yet another outstanding stop-motion video! This one is all about a day at the beach, and the work of the coastguard. He has excellent sound in this one and his use of his voice is truly excellent. Well done Tommy! Another exceptional piece of work!
