My creative response

JJ’s Animation


About my creative response

“I chose animation because I enjoy playing with Plasticine and making characters. I was thinking about doing an animation but didn’t realise how many slides it would take so I needed to have some resilience as well. I used the StikBot app to create a stop frame animation.”


When have you been ‘true to yourself’?

“I am determined to follow my dreams but I know I don’t have some of the skills I need yet. I am working hard to gain the knowledge to be a palaeontologist.” 


What is your favourite Shakespeare play?

“I like Macbeth because it has an interesting storyline and I enjoyed the drama we did related to it.”
