So today, instead of caving to R₂’s request to watch some more TV, I suggested we do something creative together instead. I am not usually very good at making suggestions like this, sadly.
It was also about time we tried that copy of Frameographer I had bought in a moment a couple months ago. This is a rather nice app for making stop motion animation from the guys who created the Glif iPhone tripod clip thing.
R₂ came up with an idea for a movie; arranged the characters and set; took most of the photos; and after Frameographer did its stuff she sat beside me and dictated the choices of titles, music, and sound effects in iMovie.
Here’s the result:
A good couple hours of fun in there, and one very pleased small auteur at the end of it.
