Digital story telling in the neighbourhood

This project of Moviemiento e.V. took place in cooperation with the Karlsgarten Primary School and the Schillerwerkstatt in the Schillerkiez in the district of Neukölln in Berlin. During the course of three months, we had a weekly session with students of grade 4 till 6 and prepared our animation film production. We collected stories from the neighbourhood and developed scripts and storyboards for three animated short films. Accompanied by media professionals from Berlin, the students learned to transform stories into films and to think in pictures, to build characters and sets and to animate them. The participants also performed the soundtrack themselves. Shortly before the Christmas break the premiere of the films took place in front of parents, friends, siblings and teachers of the Karlsgartenschule. All films are available online on the virtual map of the bigger project website
