Lego is one of those children’s toys that has universal appeal as it lets kids work with their imagination and build things – from police stations, to cityscapes, to works of art, to random structures. I’m sure I wasn’t the only child in the early nineties that tried my hand at doing stop-motion short animations with the Lego-based sets my friends and I had designed.
Lego understands this desire of children to make films, and whereas we had to use an old digital tapes – modern kids either have an iPhone themselves or have parents that do – and that is a pretty decent video camera right there. To coincide with Lego’s DC Universe Superheroes range, they have brought out an iPhone app designed specifically for making just such stop-motion movies. And the best part is it’s free (and let’s be honest no-one is going to take any notice of that claim that people should be over 18 to download it!)
Some features of the app include:
-Add & delete frames to your movie
-Choose from 5 different soundtracks
-Add a color filter to the camera
-Customize one of 11 different title LEGO Super Heroes cards
-Save your movie to your camera roll then share with your friends
