Ever wanted to make your own stop-motion movie like the Marvel Marching Superheroes?  Or maybe South Park?  Well, the Ani-Movie does it ... digitally.  It’s made up of a digital camera on a sweep arm that looks down on a “stage” for backgrounds and animation pieces — just like an old-time animation camera ... only digital.  Put one of the cut-out Marvel superheroes or villains on deck (Spidey or Dr. Doom), position him, hit the Red Button to capture a frame, move an arm, or leg, hit the button again, and before you know it, you’re playing your own animation back on your TV.  Mike DeCamp, art director for Jazwares and creator of the Ani-Movie has been a student of animation for years.  “I always thought it was cool and fun making stop-motions on my own.  Then I thought it might be easy to do digitally, and came up with the Ani-Movie.  It just kind of came together with Marvel —  they’ve been very helpful.”  You can use your own memory sticks to get more footage, too. Launch date: December 2006.
