We worked with a group of local kids to make an adventure movie about discovering an ancient pyramid in a jungle and finding ghosts there. Then they would zap the ghosts. They thought it would be fun to make a story using themselves as characters.
We took pictures of them doing different facial positions. Then we printed their pictures out on card stock white paper from our printer. We cut out just the faces, and then built some bodies out of construction paper. Then we did table top stop motion animation.
We finished the sounds in iMovie! We spent a few nights on this. Maybe three. It was a lot of fun.
Make sure to watch until after the credits when one of their Ghosts gets some revenge!
