LEGO Movie Maker Description

LEGO Movie Maker is an easy to use friendly app that will allow you to put life into your LEGO creations. You can go step by step to create each scene and then film it using an iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone. Scenes can be set up using LEGO Build to Express kits which include all different LEGO pieces to help set up a scene to depict the setting and plot you want to create. Each picture takes a snap shot of an animated motion picture. You are able to narrate the film, or have music playing. Fortunately for you, this app is free of cost and easy to navigate. Some of the special features include:

-Add & delete frames to your movie
-Choose from 7 different soundtracks, or add music from your library
-Add a color filter to the camera
-Customize different title cards
-Save your movie to your camera roll, or share with your friends on YouTube
-Add text to your movie with custom dialog cards
-Add LEGO sound effects to any frame
-Record your own sound effects
-Edit the duration of each frame

Example Lesson: You will create your ideal haunted house. What type of props and characters will be there? Is it a scary house? Or maybe a fun house with lots of candy? Use your imagination and create the scene using LEGO Build to Express. Then, film each scene using LEGO Movie Maker. The possibilities are endless!
