For this we need:

chair or ladder

a book

scissors

Smartphone

Stop motion app:

  • For android https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cateater.stopmotionstudio&hl=en
  • For iphone: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/stop-motion-studio/id441651297

The pdf with the images

We use a ladder and a book to hold the phone in place.

The paper is for sliding the characters around easier.

The camera needs to focus on the paper.

Then you can lay out your background and first characters.

After starting the App, click on „new project“

then on the little camera

and you are ready to start:

The big button is the release of the camera.

Stop Motion means that we don’t film as we know it from feature films, but that we take photos of every small movement that our characters make.

For example:

Take a picture

Move the figure a tiny tiny bit

Take a picture

Move the figure a tiny tiny bit

Take a picture

Move the figure a tiny tiny bit

Take a picture

You probably get the concept. 😉

Automatically the app makes a little film out of all the photos you took.

When your film is ready:

Press the small arrow

then click on Select and mark your film.

Press on the second symbol then export

and select your storage location.

Finished!

Feel free to send us your finished works!

We are looking forward to seeing all your great little films!

Have fun!
