A number of us in clmooc are doing stop motion videos, and others are interested in trying. Why not try yourself? Some have done it with the toy hack, but it could be done with anything and for any purpose.

Here’s a nice blog post that gives a few useful resources on making stop motion video:http://dogtrax.edublogs.org/2013/06/24/webmaker-making-stopmotion-movies/#.UcgdppzWcPg.twitter

One easy way to make a stop motion video is to take a series of still photos and then put them together in a movie making program like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker.

Or here are a few apps for doing it:

  1. Making Stopmotion Movies
       submitted by Kevin Hodgson

    Making movies has never been easier. The wide availability of mobile devices, computers, and inexpensive software options (as well as free Open Source tools and Apps) means that filmmaking can be the domain of just about anyone with a vision of a story and the desire to create. Stopmotion movies and its offshoot — claymation — hold a special appeal for moviemakers of all ages. There is something magical about the way an inanimate object can seemingly come to life. This kit is designed to provide the framework for creating your own stopmotion movies.
