Produce a short film using stop motion animation, a photographic process invented over a century ago which is still used in movies and cartoons to this day. You'll draw and build scenery, characters, and props out of building toys, paper, fasteners, and tape, then tell your epic tale in 60 seconds.

We'll provide the materials and a script. Or choose to write your own. You can embellish the tale by adding hand-drawn Special Effects with the powerful PixelMator painter. Tie it all together with sound effects, transitions, and music using Apple's iMovie.

Take home your movie on a CD.
