Product Description:

There are so many good tips and ideas for budding animators to try in this boxed set; they will be busy for hours and hours! The box itself is a two-sided set for your animation videos: one is the outside of a gloomy castle and the other is a dungeon. Sturdy cardboard flaps drop down and open to the side to expand the set, and includes a window and a door that opens. These can make for some fun lighting effects! There are also goodies in the box like a detailed handbook with step by step instructions to create several types of animation and lots of fun cardstock props. Also included are devices and props:5 speech bubbles, a zoetrope disk/drum/strip and a thaumatrope (illusion devices), lunar and tropical island props (2 sided) with a 2-sided background, press-on features for your characters, a 2-D monster puppet, a workbench prop, and 2 storyboard starters. The real meat of this set is the 32 pg. book with all of its ideas and color illustrations. Learn about creating a character, telling a story, traditional/cutout/2D/board/clay animation, complex model making, sets, props, lights, object animation, pixilation and editing. A camera or cell phone is necessary but not included. ~ Sara
