[Bf-education] Trying to realize a goal with Big Buck Bunny

As a suggestion you could teach the students to first write something that would use the Bbb assets and then have them make storyboards and then an animatic. Then they could start working with the assets. In teaching animation there really is not substitute for helping people learn how a sequence is first built. Also if they come up with their own story they feel more invested. Like they could have the BBB characters fight a space battle instead. Or be in the city. I think that is where learning really starts. Then for the technical part there are amazing resources online. Does that help?

Good luck! Teaching is fun!

I do not pretend to have all the skills of a whole team.  The experts would make it look easy and perhaps more tempting to try.  I'm pretty sure I've scared more to not even try, than to consider doing something.
