This summer, I had the privilege of working with some great kids experimenting with Animation. Students were encouraged to tell their own stories, and just have fun!
Here are a few of the students in action. Many were doing camera animations. Tripods were nice to help hold the iPads, but I also was able to borrow a few wire book holders from the library. This helped the students to keep the camera still. Cardboard, post-it notes, whiteboard markers, tape, and a few toys made life easier.
Stop Motion Studio Pro (iOS) I recommend the paid version, it allows you to draw on the photographed frames, and the possibility for sound effects. This is also available as a free app, and is also available for Android devices.
There were a lot of great products created. See the link below to see their work!
