Stop Motion Movie Making & Child's Play

iPads are revolutionising many tasks that only 5 years ago would have been unthinkable, activities like creating short films using stop motion animation, and compiling these in a video editing application would have required an high specification computer, and professional digital editing tools.

These days it is literally child's play, as two of our kindergarten teachers, Zoë Brittain, and Sarah McHugh, have been demonstrating to an impressive extent, with their after school activity 'Stop Motion Movie Making'. At the activity the students in Grades 3 to 5, work in teams to create their own 'mini movies'. They design the story, setting and characters and then bring them to life.

Here's just one show reel, everything you see here was created on an iPad, using iMotion then exported to the Camera Roll, before compiling in iMovie; all with little or no teacher assistance.
