Steadier Stop-Motion Animation

Young stop-motion animators benefit from steady stands

When Alcott Art and Technology teachers piloted STEAM units that included the creation of stop-motion animations, they soon discovered that it was difficult for students to keep their iPAD Minis perfectly still during videotaping.

The addition of iPad Stands means that students can use software animation tools during filming without moving and shifting their iPads, dramatically increasing the quality of their work. The use of iPad Stands lets students focus on visual creativity rather than camera stability.

Watch out Pixar!
