Max: stop-motion for French, and Apple Boston

Saturday 17 May 2008

Two cool posts this week on my son Max’s blog.

The first was a stop-motion animated movie he made as an assignment for French class with his friend Alice. It highlights the oppression of women in Algeria, and I think it is wonderful, both in its compassion and its technical skill. He made it with iStopMotion, a clever Mac tool that overlays successive frames with the current live view from the camera so that you can carefully animate your models.

On Thursday, he was at the Boston Apple store opening, getting a green monster t-shirt and special edition iPod sock. He’s got lots of pictures of the event in his gallery.
