Reread these paragraphs from “Animated Movies.” Then complete the items below. 

 

The first movie created entirely with computer images was Toy Story, produced in 1995. Even using computers, the movie required 27 artists. It also took 800,000 machine hours to make. Since then, many other movies have been

 

made using computers. Shrek and Finding Nemo, for example, are completely computer animated. Hand-drawn animation can look flat. It has only two dimensions, height and width. Computers can add a sense of depth. This can make animation seem much more lifelike. On the other hand, some people complain that computer images look too cold or too perfect. As the technology continues to develop, the images will continue to evolve.

A. Circle three signal words or phrases in the paragraphs above.

B. Show the correct order of these events from the paragraphs above by numbering them 1, 2, and 3.

 

Technology will continue to develop.

Computers were used to create Toy Story.

Other movies have been made with computers.

After reading the section “Try Your Hand at Animation,” show the order of these steps by writing the numbers 1–5 on the lines.Toy Story . Other movies have been made with computers.   Draw another picture slightly different
