CUSTOMER REVIEWS
The price is a bit high I think for what you get. But, I got this for my 9 year old son's birthday and he really likes it. In the box you get a large green "grass" stage, 2 dual sided cardboard background pieces, a phone/tablet stand, various blocks and several figures. My son is using this with a Fire HD 7" and the stand will hold it, but it does slide a bit since he has a bulky silicone case on it and the ridges aren't quite large enough. I think the other reviewer is not using the stand correctly. You place the stand with the post in front and the ridges behind. Turn your phone/tablet around so the screen is facing you and the camera is facing forward. Place your device BEHIND the post, lean it against the post and the ridges hold it from sliding backward. Though if your device is very large or bulky like my sons Fire HD 7" silicone case makes it, the ridges might not be deep enough to hold it very well. I suppose you can always modify it if it's a problem. Getting the correct angle to get the set in the camera frame is probably the hardest part - it would be nice if the background was slightly larger because if you zoom out to get more of the stage in the frame, the background isn't large enough.I bought my son extra figures to go with this, they are easily found in physical stores and on Amazon. The only problem is you cannot buy any extra "set" pieces. You can't get any extra fences or TNT blocks or any of the other fun pieces my son would like to have. Hopefully in the future they will? My son has plenty of the other Minecraft figures and blocks that have been out for a while, but those are a larger scale so they do not work with the animation studio.I was a little worried about the app working on my sons Kindle, but since he has the newest model the app works just fine. Overall my son is happy with it having fun making his little videos.

My eight year old son, like most others his age I know, is a Minecraft fanatic so was super excited to get this kit and start making his own live-action Minecraft videos.Given the high price point, I expected more than this skimpy set provides. There’s a larger grass block stage, where all the action takes place, a background with four scenes, a stand to hold the “camera" (android or Apple phone or tablet, or a Kindle Fire), a few Minecraft style blocks in various configurations, a tiny sword, pickaxe and torch and four plastic Minecraft figures, plus a spider.The idea is that you use the stage to create a stop-action animated film with a free app you download.Like all stop action, it’s a tedious and slow process, which my son learned quickly. The most frustrating part was that, even with the stand, it’s hard not to move or shake the iPad when you push the button to activate the app’s camera, which can screw up the painstakingly laid out movie.The app does offer it’s own pre-made transitions and scenes to bulk out your child’s movie, and my son did have fun putting the film pieces together. He was actually super patient in the set-up of the shoot, actually surprising me how much he was into the fairly tedious work, it was only when things didn’t work as they should that he became a little frustrated.It’s also unfortunate that the scale here doesn’t line up with any other Minecraft toys/products. You can’t use the ubiquitous plastic figurines (which my son has tons of) because they’re way too large in scale, nor the foldable card-stock Minecraft pieces we also have because, again, the scale is wrong.My son spent a solid afternoon working with this set, and was very proud of the short movie he made with the app. But he hasn’t gotten it out since and has returned to just playing actual Minecraft.

This is a cool kit to get started with stop-motion animation, but isn't going to give you anything that you couldn't devise yourself. The app that makes it all work is completely free, so if you've already collected your figures and have some other background or set, all you really need is a cheap/small tripod for your phone.Tips:Since standard animation requires 30 frames (pictures) to be taken for every 1 second of video, most initial attempts will end up looking like you've hit fast-forward. Kids don't realize how small of movements they really need to make. To combat this, rather than take 1 picture of each pose, take 2 or 3. It will make the motion a bit more "jerky", but since the figures aren't posable anyway, it's not a big deal. By default, the app is set to 15 frames per second, and you can adjust this. Even so, you still have to make very small movements.Notice that with the app, it provides an "onion peel" effect. That is, it displays a very light image of the last picture you took on the screen of your phone. Look carefully and it helps you line up your next pose, and you can put the camera back in place if you bump it.Put the background and the phone stand on something non-slip. A wood table or floor lets these things slide around easily.If you have a bluetooth selfie stick, use it to take each picture. That way you don't have to touch the phone/tablet at all and will be less likely to move it.Pros:+Compatible with existing Minecraft figures that are readily available in stores+Very good app that makes creating pretty easy+4 Different backgrounds+App allows you to change frame rates, edit, add effects, sounds, music and more. Tons of Minecraft sounds and music are built in.Cons:-Phone/Tablet holder doesn't sit completely flat and doesn't fit back into the box once assembled.-Editing could be easier in the app. In particular, sounds have to be added frame by frame. So if you have a person walking for 2 seconds and want to hear the footsteps, you'll need to edit a bunch of frames one by one to add the footstep sounds one by one. It would be nice to be able to multi-select frames and then add the same sound to each.-Would be cool if the app allowed voice-activated picture taking, or came with a little dongle or bluetooth button to trigger taking a picture-Not enough blocks. You can't really simulate or animate blocks being mined or built because there's not enough single blocks.-Would be better if the "ground" was also dual sided to fit in with the underground/lava backgrounds

Stop-Motion Armature Machining

McFarland. 2002 gbs preview - Minecraft Stop-Motion Animation Studio

Stop-motion puppet animation is one of the most unusual and demanding art forms in the world. It uses a variety of skills, including design, sculpting, metal work, mold making and casting, taxidermy, filmmaking, storytelling and acting, and can be seen in the simplest commercial spots on television to more complex animated shorts and science fiction and fantasy feature films. This work, with over 200 photographs and illustrations, demonstrates the construction of armatures for film industry stop-motion puppets and the technical aspects of how to machine metal into the desired shape. It describes in detail the milling machine and the metal lathe, the two main tools used in constructing the armature, other cutting tools, and how the anatomical makeup of the puppet determines the armature design. The book then examines the six main types of joints used in armature construction: the sandwich plate ball-and-socket joint, the ball-and-socket collet joint, the step-block ball-and-socket joint, the swivel joint, the hinge joint, and the universal joint. Also described are the different types of metals used in armature construction.
