I love to watch people learn new things, and get that sense of pride that happens when you’ve created something.
So as a cub scout leader I worked with the boys to learn the principles and tools used in claymation. They came up with a story board, created the set and characters, and then animated the whole thing. Then I helped to put it all together as a video with sound effects.
Letting them have that sneak peek into onion skinning and editing software was fun to see them light up as the possibilities of what could be done opened up to them. Being able to teach and mentor is one of the greatest rewards in this world.
