Fundamentals of Computer Science I

Creative Assignment 2

Animation using the graphics module.

The first computer generated movie ever produced, Toy Story, is still one of my favorites. It showed the world that talented artists could use computers to create compelling characters and tell touching stories. While the animation we can create in Python may be far from the quality of Pixar's work, its still possible to create fun animations. In this assignment you will use the graphics module as a computer amimation tool.


Create a Python program that uses the graphics module to create an animation. The animation can be anything you want, but must do the following:

  1. Use more than one image.
  2. Include movement that is not completely horizontal or completely vertical.
  3. Animate two images simultaniously.
  4. Be impressive.


Stupendous animations will receive extra credit. I will be the arbiter of whether an animation is stupendous .


Your code should conform to the course’s code conventions and will be graded according the the course’s programming assignment rubric. Submit your code and images as a .zip file on the course Inquire page before class on Friday September 19th.
