Stop Motion Animation

Kiyon's goal this summer was to make a stop motion animation. Almost the whole summer went by without achieving this goal. Too much camp got in the way. Not a problem, he LOVES camp, but I really wanted him to make his movie. Quite by accident he finally got his chance. Our very talented, designer and movie making friends (of Tirapelli Design) provided the means. They recently visited Zeum in San Francisco. It's a museum dedicated to hands on multimedia art and technology for kids.

They had so much fun, they bought the animation program on the way home. We got to visit them and the kids got to work on their movies. Tony later added music, a title page, and special effects in Adobe After Effects. Kiyon hasn't seen it yet, but I know he'll be thrilled!

They used a program called iStopMotion by Boinx. Of course, my friends have professional lights, blue back drop, and a HiDef digital video camera.
