"When we were kids, we made stop motion movies in the backyard with my father's Super-8 camera. We waited anxiously for weeks for the film to come back from processing, till we could see the results. Today, we want to build the best stop motion animation app out there to make it as easy as possible for stop motion enthusiasts like ourselves to create films they love," comments Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. "That's why we decided to consolidate previous versions of iStopMotion - which cost up to 500 USD - into one powerful package and offer the full-featured product at a rock bottom price. It's important to us that all stop motion filmmakers, young and old, have access to the best tools for creation out there."
