Simon's First Stop-Motion Video




Simon Edwards | Obi-wan vs. Anakin from Ali Edwards on Vimeo.

Last week while I attended his IEP meeting Simon got to hang out with his friend Ben. Ben and his Dad had just been perfecting the art of stop-motion and taught Simon the basics. We left there with the name of a small camera and the software (Frame By Frame) Simon needed to make some of his own videos here at home.

The camera arrived over the weekend and he's been making little videos daily since then. This first one is about 9 seconds long - you might have to push play twice (for some reason I did). So cool.

    What fun! Simon did really good for his 1st time.
    I don't even think I knew what stop action motion was until I was 25...haha

    Congrats, Simon! The video looks great. My son, Tristan (who is now 15) has been making these for awhile with LEGO. You can find him on youtube under LegoGalactus.
    Looking forward to seeing more, Simon!
