Ok, this is the coolest thing we've seen in a while. It's the perfect afternoon activity for those dog days of summer. It's also a fun way to inspire even more creativity in your little artist. Little Director will take any drawing like the one to the left and animate it creating a 1-1/2 minute film. Their turn around time is super fast so you can probably see your video the same day. You'll get an email with a link. If you want, you can also get a DVD of the short film. What a great gift idea for a budding artist or filmmaker. Use 8.5 x 11" blank, unlined paper. You child can draw using crayon, marker- whatever. You can either scan the images or take a picture of them with your digital camera. You can even include a voice narration on mp3 if you want for an extra ten bucks. Go to Little Director.com for more info and to watch movies by other kids. Pic via National Wildlife Federation.
