Oh, the Thinks You Can Think

Radical Fun Project: Stop Motion

Great things can happen when you combine iPads and LEGOs! Monroe County kids participated in our Radical Fun program and used these tools to create their own stop motion animation films.

Stop Motion is a magic filming technique that makes inanimate objects look like they are moving all by themselves. It's so simple, you can even make your own stop motion films at home!

What You'll Need:

  • Smartphone or Tablet with Stop Motion app (We used Stop Motion Studio--it's free!)

  • Something to prop your Smartphone or Tablet up

  • LEGOs, Dolls, Action Figures--almost anything can be an 'actor' in your film!

What to Do:
