4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Fun for kids and big kids! 4 April 2011
By Sooz333
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
I loved this book and spent time with the younger members of the family making their toys come to life...and then everybody wanted to join in...all sorts of objects were animated, it looks like it should just be for kids and the process and software is very easy to use, but actually kids are more sophisticated these days and they got to grips with it very quickly and preferred to use iMovie to output the results, but that said, on the whole people don't want to spend time reading a whole lot of stuff, you can pick this up and have an animation within hours.

If you want to know more or are just getting started with stop frame animation then buy this book .....a word of warning.... prepare to have a lot of fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Klutz classic 1 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover-spiral
We have lots of Klutz books and this rates as one of the best. Easy to follow guides to making clever animation films. Easy to download free software. Despite us not having a suitable webcam we were able to produce great quality films with a digital camera. Highly recommended and a great alternative pastime for children to endless video games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a little would be Nick Park! 2 Jan 2012
By Suz
Format:Hardcover-spiral
Father Christmas gave this to my 9 yr old son who wanted a book on animation. This hit the nail on the head and was far better than he was expecting. There are several videos on their website which are dissected in the book. The free software download is great and it means that he wont keep nicking my blackberry to make his films any more! You can use your webcam or a video camera that can do streaming videos. So far haven't tried it with a camera as the webcam is easy!

4.0 out of 5 stars great, but a bit misleading... 21 May 2012
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
I think the book is great, you can watch the videos on the internet to get a better idea on how the result will be.It gives great advice, it is creative etc.It is not only for kids, it can be fun for adults who are absolute beginners too.BUT, it promises us a free downloadable software.It took me only a few minutes to realize this is not the case...You have to buy the software.A totally misleading sentence on the cover of the book made me contact the company of this software and yes...you have to pay....However, it is a great book..

5.0 out of 5 stars great book! 1 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my fourteen year old nephew who is really into stop motion movies. This book was great it shows how to's in making movies and also has website details where you can view the movies you are making. I would recommend this to anyone buying for someone of a similar age range as some books on animation are a little more advanced,

4.0 out of 5 stars Great if you buy the software as well 1 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover-spiral
The book, like all Klutz I have bought is great, full of ideas and instantly grabs children's attention. However it recommends you download SAM animation which (unless I have missed something) whilst encouraging you to believe you get a special deal for purchasers of the book, gives you a demo version of the software which limits your creations to 5 seconds (50 frames) or nags you to spend $30 on the full version. My children had given up on the project by the time I had battled through the SAM suppliers website. The great sample videos on the Klutz website certainly last longer than 5 seconds, and make no mention of the restrictions.

I gave up on the free demo and purchased a full version of SAM for $30. No restrictions, intuitive and easy to use, no nagging, nice results and a fun day spent with the children filming carniverous fruit and dancing reindeer. Totally recommended (if you buy the full software)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 4 May 2011
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
Very easy to use. I have had great fun with my 11 year old son making videos. He is able to follow the instructions himself. Sam animation is a little glitchy - need a little bit of patience.
