Included in this boxed set is everything a young film maker will need to create a stop-motion movie using a cell phone or digital camera (you supply the phone or camera of course). With this kit you'll learn how to create a storyboard, design a character, and use hand-drawn sequences and 3-D models to dazzle friends and family with your creativity.

From lighting sets to using a variety of camera shots, Animation Studio offers expert tips to help kids eight and older transform a series of still images into an original animated movie.

Along with a mini stage, a press-out puppet monster with movable parts and press-out props and storyboard samples and sheets, the kit contains an engaging animation handbook. Read the book carefully and follow the suggestions you'll find there for bringing your film ideas to life.

Not only will this kit provide hours of fun for your prospective filmmaker, but it will also make the youngster a more discerning viewer of the cartoons and animated features that he/she may be watching on TV or in the theatre.
