There’s just no stopping the Canadian National Film Board’s web developers. Hot on the heels of the NFB Films iPhone , iPad , Android  and PlayBook  mobile apps, NFB’s devoted developers have come up with PixStop , a fresh new app that enables you to make stop-motion films  on your iPad 2. Designed to capture as many as 10,000 images, Pixstop allows you to create mini masterpieces up to 13 minutes long. Excitement!
Pixstop was originally designed for the NFB’s education clientèle (NFB/education ). What this means is that the app is user-friendly enough to be used in classrooms, by school-aged children.
This is no limitation on the app’s potential, however, as the clip below, made by NFB Hothouse  alum and full-fledged animator Sylvie Trouvé (director of the well-loved Orange ) amply demonstrates.
Pixstop is available on iTunes . The app is free in Canada; $2.99 elsewhere.
