It is equally loved by many thousands of parents, kids, teachers, brickfilmers, pro animators and anyone with an interest in this fascinating movie making technique.
“To me, [animating with the family using iStopMotion] was the perfect weekend of inspiration and magic and creativity. That’s what technology can do.”
– David Pogue, technology columnist
