The best way to find out whether a product is exactly what you want is to try it yourself – or to talk to someone who already tested it! For today’s post we’re going to introduce some reviews of our HUE Animation Studio kit with contributions from teachers, bloggers, mums and kids. If you’re thinking about buying the kit for yourself or as a gift for someone else, you may be able to draw inspiration from people who used the kit this year.
On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me software to animate easily… Matthew O’Brien, a secondary school educator working at Brisbane Boys’ College, Australia, describes in his blog post why he loves animating and why he finds stop-motion animation an exciting subject. And the best way to describe it, is to show!
Raisie Bay also tried and tested the HUE Animation Studio kit this year. Her verdict?
“Overall we found the HUE Animation Studio great fun. There are so many more things we want to try so I’m sure it’s going to get a lot of use. Age wise, I found that my four year old was able to get the idea of how the animation worked and was able to use the software a little. My seven year old and nine year were left alone after being shown what to do and picked it up quite easily.”
The following video is from a blog review by ET Speaks from Home. “Overall, this is a great kit that will be used again and again to create more animated movies. I love the fact that the whole family can get involved so it’s great for spending quality time together too. I would highly recommend it!”
Last but not least, here’s a review from the Whiteboard blog.
“The pack is great, and would make a great addition to any teacher interested in getting into animation. It would also make a good gift!”
“It’s simple to use and get started quickly, but powerful enough to create interesting effects once you’ve mastered the basics.”
