Creating stop action movies


Lifehacker has a couple of helpful resources for creating a stop-action movie for Windows and Mac. Nothing like digital storytelling with “old school” charm!

Pictured above: a single frame from my upcoming epic–Captain Limespear.

    I have been experimenting with stop-motion, too. I teach sixth grade and we do a collaborative claymation project with second graders, and each year, we try to push ourselves (teachers) a bit more.
    Here are some of my own samples so far:

    I am using a free stop-motion software with a webcam. And then Moviemaker to edit. Not too complicated but still awfully fun!

    Please keep sharing your adventure.
