HUE Animation Studio
|Ages:||7 - 13|
HUE Animation Studio is a starter kit for budding movie makers aged 7-13. It includes HUE Animation, easy-to-use stop-motion software, HUE HD USB camera (with built-in microphone) and a 60 page book full of tips and ideas.
This fantastic value, highly creative and educational toy will bring hours of pleasure to young film directors who with the click of a button can animate anything from a favourite toy, LEGO figures, clay creations or 2D drawings.
HUE Animation Studio has been designed by teachers for children aged 7-13. The kit includes everything that you need to create your own stop motion animation and time-lapse videos:
– The HUE HD camera, a flexible plug and play USB camera with built-in microphone.
– A single user license of the fully-featured HUE Animation software for Windows and macOS with its intuitive and easy to use customer interface.
– The HUE Book of Animation with step-by-step instructions for creating 20 hilarious stop motion videos and ideas for even more.
– Online resources such as sound effects and backdrops.
Making movies is a creative, educational and fun-filled activity that everyone can participate in, whether it is for use at home or for school projects. Simply plug the camera into your laptop, install the software and you’re ready to go.
Simple icons and navigation make it easy for kids to film scenes and edit videos. They can slow down or speed up delivery of frames, duplicate frames to lengthen scenes and add music or audio recordings to their video.
By having children construct, explain and create videos, they become authors and producers of their own knowledge and they develop communication, organisational and team-work skills through play.
Stop motion animation is a gender-neutral activity equally enjoyed by both boys and girls and it’s great for spending time together and developing different skills without even realising it.
Even the youngest of animators can have fun making and moving their characters. Older children will enjoy imagining the storyline, writing the script and recording the voice-overs, whilst the ‘professionals’ can excel at deciding on camera angles, positioning the characters and creating or importing sound effects. Any actors in the group will love getting into character for the voiceovers and everyone can enjoy watching the finished film again and again.
Kids catch on very quickly and can become competent animators in no time at all. They’ll soon be producing their own films and moving onto the more advanced features of the software such as using chroma key, adding credits and changing backgrounds. As with any skill, practice makes perfect and each new production will improve on the last.
