I learned that I should not look online but in stores so I know the exact size.
5/218
make design and find if pvc cement needs ventilation.
3
3
I learned that I should use a photo putty plug to propel the projectile instead of just the air because it might not catch all of the air.
4/19/18
look at pic pipe prices
2
3
I / We don't understand how thick the walls of the pic should be.
4/11/18
See how people do simple animations.
2
3
I think I should use unity or a posing software to make animations like stop motion.
3/15/18
I am going to take a blender course to learn how to use blender
2
3
I don't think this will work out using blender because it is to complicated
3/8/18
we are going to plan the settings for the animation
2
2
I think we should use dioramas for it.
3/1/18
we are going to work on the armachers


I think next time we should focus more on the story board.
2/14/18
continue working on the story board
2
3
I think we might need to work at home if we are working on the character. Next time we meet we should try to make the props.
2/8/18



I think we should make helmets for the ARMATURS
2/7/18
we are going to work with the armatures and work on the story board
2

2/1/18
we will make a outline for the story
1
2
maybe we should think about starting to work at home just to get the story done or we might need to separate this group.
1/18/18
we will make the dog for the film
2
2
maybe we should make armatures out of one piece of wire
1/17/18
we will make the charectors
2
2
we should spend more time on the story board. we should also spend less time messing around with the armatures.
1/10/18
work on armature design


we should use one piece of wire to make the armatures. if we do that it will be easier and take less time and we can make more of them.
12-20-17
Finish wallence and gromence

2.5
we should use more clay for the armatures

I think we should use the green screen for any affects we want to use.
11-16-17
make story board and practice
2.5
3
I think we should make movement very small between frames and speed up frames. we should finish stay board for first stop motion next time.
11-15-17
we should practice more so we under stand it more


I think we should have a good base to support the armatures
10-12-17

I/we think that it would be a good idea to get the materials to start building over the weekend so we have more time during the week to do other stuff.

what if we built the catapult out of pvc. we think making a smaller version of the catapult. we will use a smaller projectile to gage how far the big projectile will launch. also to tell what pieces we should use.
2/9/12
I am going to ...
X

Today I/we ... learned that ply wood will not work for the base. it will not work because it will probably snap under the force of the catapult. I think it would be better to use oak or pine.
11/2/17
