Format: Hardcover
Animation Studio is a new and unique type of book that provides both a fun activity and teaches a new skill. Animation Studio includes props and backdrops for the animation that you will make, or you can also make your own. It is notable that you will most likely need adult help. Some tasks appear to be very easy; however in reality they are very complex. You will need some assorted supplies not listed on the cover of the book, such as a way to convert pictures to videos (I personally used Animatelt, a free app from the store on my Microsoft 8), a fairly high quality camera and an alternative light source such as a directional lamp to prevent glare and allow for better quality animations. Once you collect all the supplies and put in the effort, animation can become a unique and fun activity. I would recommend Animation Studio to readers of any age who aspire to have a career in films or other types of digital media and entertainment. The book is a magnificent source of data for a report or for other animation projects. I would rate this book 3 stars. Although it is a fun task animating, it took a few days to get one very simple fourteen picture animation completed , due to the specific supplies needed and effort required. Subsequent projects were much easier and quicker. It is entertaining to turn your imagination into animation!

Exactly as stated. So much fun to look through--I am using it in my class to teach my students stop-motion.

The concept of this is too cool to pass up.

I purchased it for my 8 1/2 yo grandson for Xmas. Thought he and his dad would have fun doing this together. Haven't heard word yet from them about it, but I think it's awesome.

Both his parents are into graphic novels, graphic arts, digital design, etc... This seemed perfect for them as a family project.

Appeared to be sturdy and well made.

Recommended for creative kids with an imagination, and likes fun but creepy monsters.

Can't say for sure. It's a Christmas gift, so the real judge hasn't weighed in. BUT, it looks pretty sturdy, and I'm planning on seeing a lot of claymation movies created from these backgrounds!
