My boy has been using his camera to make these short stop-animation projects with his Bionicles. He, very patiently, sets up the characters and changes their position ever so slightly as he photographs them. He hasn't finished a project yet, but I have looked through his pictures and they are pretty neat. If you look through them fast enough, the animation really comes alive and you can see his vision. Once he completes one, I'll try to figure out how to post it and you can enjoy it too.
I just think it's really neat to see him plan out a project and invest his time and patience into it.
Maybe we have an animation artist/director on our hands??
