This would make an ideal christmas or birthday present for any young aspiring director or movie producer, can't praise it enough, the kids words include Cool, awesome, fab and wow...
|Length: 1:50 Mins|
The website that supports this animation kit has plenty of tutorials for everything on zu3d which are very helpful, although if I am honest I had to watch some more than once. Zu3d comes with some different colour plasticine however I have lego so I used that.
If a there is a child you know who would like to have a go at making their own animated films and likes using a computer then this would be great.
It is now the end of September 2015 and over the last nine months the Zu3D kit has been and continues to be used regularly. Mostly my son uses the Zu3D on his own, but every so often, he and I will use it together, one of us moving the characters and the other one clicking to take the shot. We have used Lego people, as well as the Hamster Ball (spaceship) and clay (plasticine) figures.
It is fun planning and preparing to make a movie, although as you can imagine, depending on how serious you are about your movie, the planning and preparation can be just a very quick thought process, then away we go. The quality of the movie you make does to a large extent depend upon your patience. To achieve a realistic character movement on screen, requires many small movements and frame captures during the making. If patience is not one of your virtues, then you will find that the on-screen movements of your characters will be jerky instead of smooth and gradual. Quite honestly does this really matter? If you are serious about making semi-professional stop motion animations, then yes, it does matter.Read more ›
The kit comes with everything you need: camera (nicely made with its own light source and focus),the green screen, a stage backdrop and even a collection of plasticene (oh, and the all-important software that really is a doddle to use)
The software is simplicity itself to use with the ability to add a vision 'track', multiple "sound tracks" (so you can have background sound effects, voices and music on separate tracks) and a 'green screen" film (such as a video of some world landmark or a real-life piece of film). This really is child's play and the results are astounding - with patience and persistence they can become outstanding [It does take some effort and thought to make a stop motion animation of 100-1000 frames]. As finishing touches the software provides Title screen transitions and credit roll-overs so that you can become the director of the piece.
An excellent start in film making!
