7th Grade Stop Motion Animations

The 7th grade classes worked with Magic Box Productions and Ms. Kamaris to create a series of original short stop-motion animations.

Over a 5 week period, students learned the various jobs of the motion picture industry to create a film describing a relationship between a pair of antonyms.

Please take the time to view their hard work!

Special thanks to the PTA for making this program possible.

Time Travel….

The 7th graders at P.S. 122 worked with Magic Box Productions & Ms. Kamaris, to create a series of original stop-motion animations based on time travel. The students planned, story boarded, made art work and shot their own short animations. 

Each small group started with taking a photograph of a place. The photograph was printed large and was use as the background for the animation.

A special thanks to the PTA for funding the Magic box project!

P.S. 122 2014

Thanks to funding from the PTA and the fundraising efforts of the 7th Grade Academy students, we were once again able to work with Magic Box Productions. Magic Box Productions is a multi-faceted video production group specifically geared to the needs of educational groups and arts organizations, offering video productions, workshops, and videotapes. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Magic Box for several years now. This year’s seventh graders focused their documentary on the 8th Graders’ Social Studies Exit Project, Project Citizen.
