Honestech's Stopmotion Studio Competition

I knew I just had to host this competition as it sounded like great entertainment for children of all ages. 


On rainy days children will badger for screen time but you can focus their energies onto a more productive project and unleash their creative side in the process.  The stop-motion animation enables your child (or a class at school) to come up with their very own movie and even better they can bring whatever figures they want to life.  If they have created something out of modelling clay or any other art material they can then see that used as a character in their film, there is so much potential and its great for young imaginations and developing minds.

I particularly like that the program does encourage them to be creative off screen before coming up with the motion, the sound effects and voices at the computer.  The educational applications of this program are vast.  It is beneficial learning all the stages involved in making a movie, they can work on the story board, change backgrounds, use their own images from video or camera and incorporate them into the film.  It sounds very user friendly, so children will not be put off thinking it’s over complicated.  They will enjoy seeing their ideas and vision come to life and feel very proud of the end result.



Priced at £59.99 you could really inspire a future career for your children in film, one day they might be editing or even directing the next big blockbuster!  At the very least it would help improve their confidence using a PC and their awareness of movie production.  They can then share what they have made on Youtube or facebook to showcase their good work!

If you would like to win your own copy please complete the rafflecopter below by the 10th of March.
