In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, singer/songwriter Jack Johnson reveals that he made the music video to his latest song with iStopMotion on iPad! We're huge fans of Mr. Johnson's music and of course very proud hearing this. We hope for many more, very creative music videos.
If you are a teacher in the New Zealand area do not miss the opportunity to join one of the iPad Animation workshops by Craig Lauridsen. Craig has been teaching stop motion for 10 years. He has overseen hundreds of stop motion animations made by children age 8 to 16 years.
The iPad Animation workshop focus on:
- Digital technologies - breaking big tasks into smaller tasks and applying appropriate digital tools
- Storytelling - helping children to tell their stories using stop motion animation
- Technology - turning the iPad into a creative studio
- 100% hands on creativity - not web surfing.
The dates for May and June are now available for booking on the website - don't miss the Early Bird Pricing.
"Hold on, lemme take a skelfie." A skeleton waiting to scare people in the park decides to upload a new skelfie to favorite social media.
Lori Escobar’s animated short is part of a bigger project in planning featuring this skeleton on this setting of a park at night. Lori built the characters in rubber clay and constructed an elaborate set. iStopmotion is used to film the scenes with an iPhone 5 as the camera, a setup which Lori finds “really easy”. Adobe Premiere is used for post production and the effects are created in After Effects. Lori also wrote the music in Garage Band.
