May 30, 2014 - The New DIY Lego Movie

In 1998 this colourful and creative toy was one of the original inductees
into the National Toy Hall of Fame and for generations Lego bricks have been a fun way to entertain and share one’s imaginative ideas.  Now these versatile and engaging Lego bricks have now gone techie!  Lego Movie Maker is a free iPad app that lets students create stop motion movies quickly and easily using Lego models.

Once the app (Lego Movie Maker) is downloaded you are ready to begin snapping photos of your figures and creating your movie.  You can
add or delete frames within the movie in addition to including title frames, sound effects, text overlays and even include colour filters to the camera for special effects.  Once completed movies can be uploaded to YouTube or saved to your iPad.

The app is very user friendly and creates fun and will allow students to explore the art of movie making while expressing their creativity.  Provide your students with a topic and watch their imagination shine!
