SHOOTING FROM HOME
To assemble your phone photos into animation, iMotion is super:

And you can use:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/imovie/id377298193?mt=8
Apple’s version of Premiere or Final Cut

If you have an android (like me), this might work (I’m still researching this- more later):

OR

HOMEWORK!

Technically, there is no homework (unless you missed the first class). Make sure to bring your 50 (or more) flipbook drawings, NUMBERED!
