We think good books should have cool advertisements just like movies and that is why Bubbler animators want to help you create book trailers! This stop-motion animation project aims to expand the story-telling skills of teens in Madison, WI while marketing the books they are reading, especially titles from Read On Wisconsin, a statewide literacy program that promotes high-quality books for children and teens. Check out the showcase!
We recommend the Madison Story Project as a nice setup for learning to tell a story using the library's equipment prior to the Book Trailer project. Connect with us to see if we can schedule a collaboration!
At first I had no idea what to expect. I didn't think you could make a trailer without taking excerpts from a movie.
Before completing this project I hadn't thought of stop-motion as being one of the media outlets. I also understand the reason it is being integrated into school curriculum much more thoroughly.
