Our idea was to have a story where the cat was going to attack the bird but the dog stops the cat. This was harder than we thought! We took over 100 photos, and the video was only a few seconds long. Also, in this clip, the man helping us has it where it keeps circling back to the beginning, so it is hard to tell where the story starts. And, he was in charge of taking the photos (we moved the characters) and we couldn't see what was happening so I got my hand in a few shots.
I was excited to see how the process works, though. And, he was using a free program called Monkey Jam. I just need to buy a camera for the computer and we'll be ready to try a "real" show!
