Kids may now direct, produce and screen their own action movies with the MARVEL HEROES ANI-MOVIE, THE ANIMATED MOVIE MAKER from Jazwares Inc. The ANI-MOVIE lets young filmmakers create and edit action-packed movies, using the latest stop-motion, digital technology, and view them on their own television.
Kids choose one of the backgrounds included and place it on the stage. Then they set up the two-dimensional characters, like Spider-Man, Hulk, Green Goblin and Dr. Doom, and pose them on the background. Press of a button and the attached digital camera captures their epic battle or heroic rescue. They may move the figures slightly and capture that image and continue until all their scenes are photographed.
After shooting the still images, kids can play back their creation on any TV and watch as the series of still shots are transformed into the fluid motion of a movie. Budding filmmakers may press the sound effects buttons to add "blams" and "pows" while their friends watch their very own self-created action film.
Everything needed to make the movie is included in the set, except for three AA batteries. However, kids can use their own SD card to save, edit and expand the length of their animations.
Geared for ages 8+, MARVEL HEROES ANI-MOVIE, THE ANIMATED MOVIE MAKER is available at Toys 'R' Us with a MSRP of $60. For more information go to www.jazwares.com.
