Lads and Dads iPad World Cup 2014 Animations

“60 yard shots, rash challenges, simulation, red cards and the stretcher” and the world cup hasn’t even started!

I’ve been very lucky to work with the staff at St John’s infants in Leigh for a while and this project really was something special. The school invited dads to come into school and work with their year 2 “lads”.

They worked together to create animations about the world cup. It created an opportunity for the dads to be in school and see school life and of course spend time learning and having fun with their boys. It’s probably a tougher call for men to come into a primary school like this, but they did a great job and there was a real sense of achievement. Here are a couple of examples. We were using iPads for the animation and iMacs for the final editing. The lads and dads did all the work with just a little support and guidance from Jane Williams and myself. 

Watch carefully… There’s even the “hand of God” making a quick match fix!
