Stop Motion Animation: Yoda Rocks

The kids put together a LEGO stop motion movie yesterday. They had some unschooling technology moments while they put their series of pictures into Windows Movie Maker. There was some question about the frame rate which they never could work out so Dan helped out and here we are. I'll show the kids this morning how he did it.

I'm quite certain they'll be unstoppable now.

And I'll try to refrain from saying, "Yoda used his wand to recreate the droids." I knew as soon as it left my mouth that was mistake. Dan is probably still laughing.

For the record, I do know it's a light saber. Really.

Very cool. Justin has been asking to do stop action photography with his Star Wars legos and we have that same software! He will be happy about that!
I am going to see if I can get my old digital camera working for him as a surprise.

My boys have been doing this with their Legos lately, too!

Oh my! Love it! It was a Star Wars Lego Christmas here - I'm sure some little movies are in our future too.

That's great! :-) My daughter and I tried to make a very short movie at a museum a few months ago. I've been meaning to do it at home, but we haven't gotten around to it yet.

I enjoyed the show!
