(Highlights how mathematics is used in creative fields such as animation, art, music and sound recording)

Behind the scenes is a 50 minute assembly / workshop taking audience members through the complete process of creating a Story Ship interactive animated show from script, to stage, to screen. Starting with the initial story concept and script creation, students go through character design, voice over-acting, sound effects creation, animation movement, sound design and sound mastering. Participants also get the opportunity to try their hand at animating or moving a character on screen, recording their own voice-overs, manipulating puppets. This hands-on workshop is an excellent introduction to animation and show students how mathematics and science play an important role in the creation of animated shows.
