Thank you for joining us for a wonderful week in Video Production: TubeStars Tech Camp!
If you are interested in continuing your education from Video Production: TubeStars Tech Camp, below is information about how to purchase the technologies we use in Tech Camp.
Please note that there are several things you need to make Stop Motion Animation movies. You will need:
- video editing software
- a video camera (or other digital camera)
- props and sets
- Youtube Account.
Software Programs for Stop Motion
- Link: VideoPad free (used in camp)
In Tech Camp, campers use VideoPad software to edit their videos in post-production. Campers used many features of the software, including adding graphics, inserting text, zoom, and transitions. The version of the software campers used is free; however, there is a paid version available that offers more features. The paid version is available here.
Purchasing a Video Camera
- Amazon link: Ourlife kids Waterproof Camera $37 approx.
The next item you’ll need to start making videos on your own is a video camera. In camp, we use a high-definition digital camera. The camera you use or purchase should have the ability to capture video and transfer it over to a computer for editing in post-production.
Webcams range in price from $20 to over $500. However, we have found that some of the cheapest webcams often times work just as well as the more expensive options. Sometimes, even smartphone cameras can be used to shoot video.
Props and Sets
When it comes to creating props and building sets for your videos, you are limited only by your creativity. In camp, we have used objects available to us and items brought from home.
In order to share videos on youtube, you will need a Youtube account. Setting up a Youtube account is quick, free and easy. Simply go to Youtube.com and sign in with your Google account. If you do not have a Google account, you can sign up for a Google account here. Campers must be 13 years of age or older to have their own Youtube account. Parents may create an account for their camper 13 years of age or younger.
