In the fall edition of stop-motion animation, kids (grades 2-4) combined their artistic abilities with their technology skills to create some wonderful movies. First, they came up with an outline for their story. Next, they used digital cameras to take pictures and import them into iMovie. Last, they put the finishing touches on their projects by adding professional quality opening and closing effects.

The librarians were extremely impressed with the attention to detail displayed by each group. Their hard work was apparent, as each video turned out to be a masterpiece! Great work and remember, you can make a stop-motion video at home. Click on the links below to get specific instructions for your computer.
