Animating your shave? It’s something only an Animation Chef would do. Our obession with animating stuff with our iPads has risen, or sunken, to new levels.
After you watch this stop-motion make-over, stop and think about how it was done. This was a very tricky process. Shave, click, shave, click, shave, click…etc. It took about 400 pictures to accomplish this little film.
The oldest chef started college this year. From the dorm with love!
We had the privilege of being invited to two Apple Retail Stores in New York City to help young people find their “verse”. Check out this short montage from the day. The co-host was Boinx software, makers of iStopMotion our app of choice to help young kids learn animation. Now go out and make your own cartoon network! Enjoy!
We have a new segment called Animating Kids. This is the first lesson about the secret recipe for creating a special effect known as an “inbetween blur”. It’s a neat effect to create the illusion that a character sprints from one place to another.
Check it out. If you want to print out the recipe sheet with the instructions, it’s posted in our members area. Just sign in and download!
We were invited to teach kids animation in Qatar by the Institute for Family Studies during the biggest conference on Social Media in the Middle East. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to get our passports ready. Our producers (parents) went and taught our secret recipes to the kids in Doha Qatar. Turns out kids everywhere really get that making media is a very important skill for anyone growing up in the age of social media. Enjoy this short film from Qatar.
We were challenged to go to a restaurant and make a movie during dinner with an iPad. We didn’t want to spend all our money on food, so we went the cheaper route and parked our gear at a local Mall’s food court. Then the idea hit us to do an Ulitmate Fighting parody. We really were kicked out by the Mall cops. We made quite a mess and the cleaning crews were standing around waiting for us to finish. One of them reported us, so the rent-a-cops shut us down.

We love the Lego Movie. But we think we’ve done a more authentic film. We used real Legos. And we made it with kids, for kids. Since they made their own story, and they were 10yrs old…it is about bad smells. We love the passion kids have for Legos. It is something to behold. So thanks for beholding this little masterpiece.
