Stop-Motion Animation

Stop-motion is a fun and easy way to get started in film-making. You don't need expensive equipment and you don't have to be a technical wizard, although the results might make you look like one. All you need is:

    • Digital camera
    • Computer
    • Standard editing software (Mac: iMovie - PC: Windows Live Movie Maker)

For a step-by-step guide on how to use Windows Live Movie Maker to create an animation, click here.
