Thank you Peter - most inspiring. I will give rotoscoping a go myself,
then with my students. We use Sony Vegas, and I can see a few ways in
which we might be able to use it in conjunction with photoshop and
various special effects.

Have you considered getting your students to create an animated video on
the 3in6 day late in October?
Maximum length allowed is 3 minutes (most will probably be much shorter
and that is fine), and the students will have 6 hours in which to do it.
They can use any animation method they want, but it will need to contain
a secret spoken quote plus a secret idea or concept that is revealed to
them on the morning of the competition.
Many details are on the competition website http://3in6.openlab.net.au.
Last year there was only one animation entry (all others were normal
video) but this year there are 3 divisions devoted entirely to
animation. How many decide to enter remains to be seen.
The time pressure of 6 hours really gets the creative juices flowing. My
normal frustration as a teacher is getting the kids to get a move on.
Their video production can take many weeks. Under a 6 hour deadline what
they create is really mindblowing. For me it really works.
I hope that for 2006 we will have dozens of animation entries - time
will tell...

Thanks again Peter, Keith Richardson.
