Last December I was introduced to Klutz, creator of fun activity books for kids. Heck. Who am I kidding, they’ve taught me how never to grow up with the The Encyclopedia of Immaturity. If you’ve been here long enough, you might remember I featured their Bristle Bots and Paper Fashions Fancy in my 2009 Holiday Gift Guide. Klutz also made an appearance during our Rainy Day Fun month long series with Fancy Friendship Bracelets. If you were a bettin’ Momma you might bet on the fact that I love me some Klutz and I, secretly, think they love me back.
Their latest book release, the Klutz Book Of Animation, shows kids how-to create stop-motion magic, from practical instruction to ready-to-shoot scripts! To celebrate the release of this book, Klutz is touring the Blogosphere on an exclusive 17-stop Blog Tour and I’m lucky number 13. Each stop will feature a tutorial video and exclusive content from the co-author & creator Nick Berger. Oh, and and fun giveaways along the way too!
Anybody with a computer, camera, internet connection and a little bit of creativity can create animated films for the masses. The Klutz Book of Animation is a how-to-guide for this art form. Step-by-step instructions show you how to create a variety of different classic stop motion special effects. Watch the real videos we created here and then start making your own!
