Which forbidden fruit does Adam and Eve eat in the Garden of Eden?Read More
This stop motion short created with 12 rising 9th grade campers at Camp Ramah seeks to answer that question.
After two weeks of meetings and discussions, scripting, designing, and hundreds of snapshots…none of the students had seen the whole project put together yet. They sat in the back of auditorium on wooden benches with about one hundred of their friends and staff from all over camp. While the general audience was chatting and flirting, the animation group was clearly focused on the big screen hanging from the ceiling, waiting for the show to begin. As soon as the film appeared, you could see the excitement and pride on their faces. Their peers were remarkably silently focused, with the exception of whispered amazement at animated effects. After the credits rolled, the room burst into the loudest applause of the day, and members of the group were beaming with pride. Some high-fived and some were still fixed on the screen, clapping so hard you could see their unabashed sense of accomplishment. All the hard detailed work, extensive planning, group decision making, and crunch time pressure dissolved into a celebration of achievement, pride, and community recognition. I was proud of them, but the most impressive and moving tribute to their work was this moment of authentic satisfaction and accomplishment as a team and as true creators.
