Stop motion Dolly

During our Genius Hour Jono and Nate were using my iPhone to do stop motion. I'm impressed that the boys put together a camera dolly with lego!

Why might using a dolly be a good idea when making a stop motion movie?



  1. If you add movement to a series of stop motion shots you get a dolly move or a crane move if you raise of lower the camera. essentially you are "shaking the rattle" for the viewer i.e. keeping them interested

  2. ps I love the dolly and will be promoting it as another item I can hire out LOL

  3. I can't hire it out but I could see some of our students using/borrowing the idea - we've just had some stop animation done in class and some of the students were complaining about the cameras and having to hold them.
