This is an excellent resource for teachers that want to incorporate stop motion animation into their curriculum! Lauridsen's book is easy to follow and full of tidbits and resources that veteran animators will find useful! I love that this is a digital book, as the video and and interactive resources just can't be duplicated with paper!

Have an iPad? You have an animated movie making studio in your hands. We've been animating for 5 years now, the last two years with an iPad, and this book is the best source for anyone wanting to do it all with an iPad. It's all here; the sound recording workflow, the editing, the animating, the story process, etc. This is … animation gold. We wish we had this when we started. The sound chapters are pure gold. Work arounds, tips, mounting ideas, remote control of your iPad and so many more fun, real-world ideas saturate every chapter.
We especially liked the use of 'mind maps' to navigate through the subject matter in the book. Mind maps work like our minds do, and we were able to drill down to the subject areas we were most curious about with clarity and ease.

This book made me realise that there are lots of possibilities using this software, and I can see why people really get into it. In short, it is fun to read and the project ideas in the last chapter really bring the possibilities alive! Having multimedia capability built right into a book still seems remarkable! So … my feedback is not only positive - but enthusiastic!
