I will post a more lengthy reflection later. But I just finished leading a professional development workshop at LACMA's Art + Film Institute. We used iPads to make miniature diorama movies. I was so impressed with what the teachers came up with.
The link below shows they sets they built and a bit of the moviemaking technique. I created little stand for iPads specifically to be used for moviemaking on this scale.
I'll send a link later once the museum post the results of the workshop on their blog.
