Katelin O’Hare, an Art teacher at The School at Columbia University, gave me a heads up weeks ago that she was interested in offering a stop motion animation mini-course. We split the preparatory work. She researched iPad apps while I looked for iPad tripod mounts and clamps so kids could film with the iPad either facing a wall or facing a tabletop.
Katelin settled on Stop Motion Studio Pro for $4.99. This app does all the editing in-app so no need to export and edit anything unless necessary.
I bought a few different models of iPad mounts and clamps to beta test:
Cobra Clamp by Snake Clamp for iPad 2/3/4 for $59.95
Cobra Clamp by Snake Clamp for large adjustable tablet for $59.95
Grafiti Nootle with video pan head for $40
iPevo Perch Podium stand for iPad for $129
I still want to purchase a Joy Factory Tournez clamp mount for $159.95
