There are a couple different ways to create stop-motion animation: The 24 frame – move characters ever so slightly style, and the 1-2 second record style (where you are not looking for fluidity). Whatever your style, Stikbot has a way to get you into this genre. It was so easy, I made my own animation within seconds at Vidcon!
What is Stikbot
Stikbot is a series of characters that can be posed in many ways. Using plastic bodies with an elastic cord running through legs, arms, and head – along with suction cup hands and feet – you can pose your characters in different ways. Make small or bigger moves to simulate the animation.
What Do You Get with Stikbot
There are many different types of products, from the main studio – with 2 characters and a chroma-key background – to simple one character bots with add-ons such as hats and gear. You even have dogs, cats, and monkey Stikbot.
