As part of your GCSE English exam, you’ll be asked to analyse and discuss aspects of the non-fiction and media text ‘genre’.

Genre

The word ‘genre’ suggests that a text type is easily identifiable by readers as belonging to a particular kind or type; in effect, we all ‘stereotype’ texts just as we do people but the effect is called ‘genre’ rather than stereotyping! Texts that clearly ‘fit’ a particular genre are called ‘generic texts’ and we recognise them because they show particular ‘genre conventions’ in...

Internet Safety Animation by Newman School »

Monday February 21, 2011

This video was created using a combo of three programs. First, a cheap Mac program called Noodle Flix. This allows green screen and allows you to animate half a dozen digital heads, male and female.

This gives you camera moves like a studio and third a PC program called Crazytalk which is very versatile. You can animate eyes and mouths on objects but it is meant for faces. A bit of experimentation here!
