Cut-Out Puppet Animation Course

You need a tablet (Apple Ipad or Android) or at a pinch a smart phone (quite fiddly but possible), a tripod and a holder to connect the device to the tripod.

The app. you need is called Stop Motion Studio and you can get the free one or the pro (I recommend the pro) in the apple app store.
