Make It Monday: Stop Motion Animation

We are so excited to share this project with you! We literally spent like two and half hours on this, but this is a project that you can spend as little or as much time on as you would like. We went all out for ours, but it can easily be made simpler.

Yesterday we were getting ready to sit down at the breakfast table when Lil Man made some sound effect. This is a normal occurrence, and we always tell him how awesome he is when he does it without realizing it. Manda made the comment that he needed to grow up and work in sound effects. Then she had the idea to make a stop motion video with him.

After breakfast we headed to his room for "supplies". We grabbed some cars and a camera and got to work!

We set up the pictures and snapped the shots. Then we downloaded the pictures and put them in order and added some audio. Now this was a much longer process than it seems written out here, but we're going to discuss how to make the videos more in depth on a Wired Wednesday post. 

Here's our video:

 Hope you enjoyed our stop motion animation! Have you ever done anything like this? We'd love to see it!

    1. Thanks! We had tons of fun making it!

  2. I love this!! What a cool idea! Last year, for our Media Literacy strand, I had my students make commercials for a video game they had invented and designed themselves. This would've been a much better way of doing it!! I'll keep it in mind for next time! :) Thanks for sharing!
