    Fun little app to bring out the creativity in myself. I've spent many hours creating small stop motion animations.

WHAT IS THE MEANING?

Stop-motion is a cinematographic technique in which successive positions of objects are photographed to produce the appearance of a movement.

Did you know?

Did you know that Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride was his first full-length stop-motion animated film? Corpse Bride tells the story of a groom practicing his wedding vows in the inadvertent presence of a deceased woman. She rises from the grave assuming that the groom has married her. The movie was nominated in the 2006 Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year. 30 principal characters of the movie were brought to life by 300 puppets on set. Each character has at least 12-14 individual models. The movie had a 55-week shoot, during which, 109,440 one by one animated frame had to be set up and filmed.

Even though considered as a dying art, the truth is stop-motion is not. The technique has become one of the most underground and grassroots forms of filmmaking. In fact, stop-motion has been responsible for everything from visual effect showpieces and fantastic creatures to full-length features. Since stop-motion technique offers more creativity in video or photography productions, many developers launch stop motion apps. With developed stop-motion animation apps such as iMotion and software like Adobe After Effects, it is now easy to learn and practice stop-motion technique.
