Get those legos, stuffed animals, or design your characters out of clay and make a movie! You will be using the FREE app "stop motion" to create a movie that makes it looks like the toys are moving on their own. Stop motion animation is created by moving an object a little bit at a time, taking a photograph of it, and then moving it again. You will be using the FREE app "stop motion" to create a movie that makes it looks like the toys are moving on their own. Once you are finished with your stop motion animation, you can record your voice and make your characters come to life.
EXTRA: Save your movie and import it into iMovie. There you can also record your voice, add sound effects, music, a title and credits page.
Share your final creation with a loved one and/or upload to Google Drive for me to see. Link on side.
Have fun and remember, don't move the camera...only the object.
