Project of the day: J’s Stop Motion Animations

I fixed J up with some stop motion software on my unused Droid phone today. He took to it immediately. I’m hoping to get him fixed up with sound effects, voices, and music at some point. Here is one of his longer silent films. The speech bubble at the beginning says “Me again.” The green brain slugs have been featured in several of his short films. Keep in mind that he just turned 9 yesterday. :)
