Animated Mind (AnimataMente)

These animated social spots were done by many high school students from the town of Lucca and Province. Each film was done using a webcam in 6 hours of workshop. I was involved as media-educator and general director. In each group I led the students’ brainstorming, helping them to come up with a precise idea in just one hour. In the remaining time the students animated the objects and acted as well.
