It is that time of the year again!! OLLIE team is getting ready and energized to work with approximately 150 young people this coming Fall term. After we finished our awesome Summer Program we became more inspired to continue this great program. We are really looking forward to start working with great projects such as the skateboarding in Portland project with Beverly Cleary School, or making videos about the upcoming Presidential Election with the Reynolds High School students. Visit this website often to keep watching all the amazing videos our participants are going to create.
Shazamo! OLLIE videos are now searchable! It took a long time, and a lot of tagging (thanks, OLLIE team!), but I think that it was definitely worth the trouble. Just click on the "Movies" link at the top of the page, and then type some keywords into the search box. You can search by school, student name, term, OLLIE trainer, theme, or whatever you want. How convenient! I'm going to go search right now for "animation", and see what comes up!
I went to the Boeing Portland Family Fun Day on Sunday, and it was super sweet. We set up an animation stand, brought out some clay, and let people make their own stop motion animations! We had about 25 kids working individually or collaboratively to make these. Enjoy!
This youth-hosted screening will showcase short films created during the Moving Images summer workshop. Each film represents a student’s personal journey, including the importance of art, traveling and moving, families, injuries, and superheroes. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll have a great time. Refreshments will be served!
