Description
Series Description
"'Writing Time' is a series of 32, 15 minute video tape lessons designed to introduce and teach all of the cursive letters to primary children. Letter animation is one of the main techniques used. Letters and words appear as if an invisible hand was writing them. In-studio animation is also used for various animals and characters appearing in the series. The specially designed set contains a chroma-key wall, a sliding chalkboard and a desk where the teacher's writing is reflected into the camera by means of two mirrors. The lessons attempt to teach cursive writing in an interesting and easy way for children to learn."--1972 Peabody Awards entry form.
