No matter how you home teach, be it unit studies, classical, structured, unschooling or, our favorite, eclectic approach, Stop Motion Animation Kit would be a brilliant addition. This very cool tool functions both as a method and a reward for learning an enormous range of topics. Your children could research and animate historic battles, Bible stories, classical literature, or even what to do in a variety of emergency situations. Once your children get the hang of stop motion animation, everything is fair game. To begin with, your studio crew will need to rough out a script of sorts. After sketching out a plan, they can use any manner of figures or props in their scenes. Lego is a traditional favorite.
Frame Grabbing Software Makes The Process Painless
Once the actors have been selected, your child captures the frames of the scenes with the enclosed camera. This camera is attached to your computer via a USB cable and utilizes frame-grabbing software. Typically when you are animating you take multiple shots of a scene where only minuscule changes have occurred. Frame grabbing software takes all the frames and sticks them together to make a film.
Easy to Edit and Polish
Next your child will edit the footage with Non-Linear Editor, a program that effortlessly allows him to move clips around on a timeline and cut and paste them, all in a matter of minutes. Then he can polish his film up by adding any sounds, dialogue, music, or titles that he might want. Now the finished product is ready to share with family and friends. Save these creative works, they will be priceless treasures in the years to come.
