About the authors:
This site was designed as an entry in the Think Quest Scholarship contest by a team of high school and elementary students to be used by other high school and elementary students. We hope you will enjoy it. Let us know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ellie is a 6th grader at Brownsville Elementary School in Washington State. Her school has some computers in the resourse center but access to the web is limited. In fact, Ellie is the first student at her school to use the web actively. This project is the first one like it attempted by a student at her school. She has used a computer at home since she was a toddler and loves to use the computer to create art and do her homework. After reading several books, articles and web sites on animation, Ellie wrote, did most of the image collection and created the history pages, including the timeline and all of its links, the fun stuff pages and all of its links, the trivia quiz and the reviews page. She collected the art for the pages about Toy Story, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Steamboat Willie from Disney at http://www.disney.com/nav/nav_dir.html, the Cartoon-Factory at www.cartoon-factory.com/wb_vr.html, and http://www.disney.com/DisneyVideos/ToyStory/about/history/_1990s.htm#toy_story. The art for The Flintstones and The Simpson's came from Funart at Funart.com/directorscorner/index.html and the art and some of the information for Terminator 2 and the computer animation page came from ILM unofficial web site: http://www.teleport.com/~ilm. The copyrights for the art for those pages remain with the original owners and are used under the fair use guidelines.
Ellie created her own drawings for the magic lantern, the thaumatrope and the zoetrope pages and created the background for the quiz. She also created the flip book, videotaped it and created the animated GIF for that page and, with her coaches help, designed the logos and the other animated GIFs. She created the resources page, fixed file name errors, and did a final check of all pages to make sure they worked.
Steve and Daryl are both seniors at North Kitsap High School in Washington State. Their school has a large computer lab and every student has access to the web. They use PCs in the library and Macs in the Visual Communication Lab. They have learned to use PhotoShop, PageMill and several layout programs. Steve wants to be in animaiton or filmmaking. Daryl hasn't decided what he wants to be yet.
Steve set up the outline and the organization for the site. He decided on the use of frames and the overall look of the site. He also created the illustrations for the steps of animation and for the bug buttons and background. Steve also created several illustrations which didn't get used.
Both Steve and Daryl were responsible for researching and collecting
information for the jobs pages, the links pages and the college pages. Daryl
did the actual page and file creation and coding for those pages while Steve
was busy scanning in and manipulating his illustrations. Daryl also wrote
and created the glossary page, wrote the steps of animation page and fixed
coding and file name errors on most early pages. Daryl helped find images
for the timeline, also.
