Summer Film Challenge #1
Stop Motion Animation: BEAT THE HEAT
Today we’re excited to launch the first of our Summer Film Challenges. The weekly filmmaking contests are tailored to kids in grades K-5 but can be enjoyed by filmmaking students of all ages who want to put their imaginations to the test!
What You’ll Need
iPad or iPhone with the Stop Motion Studio app (You can download it for free from the app store.)
In this first challenge, you’ll create a stop motion animation video that is 1 minute or less. You can use any kind of art or object – paper, clay, legos, drawing, toys, or even yourself! The subject of this challenge is BEAT THE HEAT. What do you and your family do to stay cool in the summer? Or is it impossible, do you just melt? To get your imagination going, follow the links under Inspiration for fun video examples.
