Liz Popiel, the creator of this class writes:
"I made a movie. It is made up of still clips from my puppet class last
semester. It is set to the sound track of "BEST IMITATION OF MYSELF" by Ben
Folds. I heard the song one day while driving up 684 on the long drive to
school. I became obsessed with the lyrics and HAD to do a tribute. Keeping
in mind, it is my FIRST experiment at creating a Ken Burns style of
documentary in imovie.....do watch and enjoy. It does show the joy the
students had in creating their imitations of themselves.
It was a blast to make. The next version will include the students names
etc in the credit roll. I was frustrated that I did not have more good
pictures. I have to search other sources and when I make the sequel, you
will see even more fun stuff.
(students...send your pictures to me if you have any! some of you are
missing because I do not have good pictures of you from class) If you liked
at all my other puppet clips you will enjoy this!!!"
