Visions of London: "In Spring 2005 a group of 10 to 13 year old children from Chestnut Grove School and other local schools in the London Borough of Wandsworth, collaborated to create a short animation." The story of "The Mystic Bottle": It's a lovely day in Battersea Park. Children eat ice creams, dogs play and the animals in the zoo are having a fun time. Until the mystic bottle arrives... Mark Currie, the producer, writes: " The kids had a lot of fun with iStopMotion making it."

Director Simon Blake produced a 2 minute "viral commercial" for Levi's 501 called "World Gone Pretty" using iStopMotion. He writes: "It was wonderful using your software. I can't wait to keep on using it in the future." Aside from the short itself, the web page also contains a "Behind the Scenes" section which features a time lapse movie from the movie set and a bit of background on the story.

Ryan J. Bonnell reviews Boinx Mouseposé for MacZealots.com: "With all the beautiful eye candy that has become standard on Mac OS X, one piece of software that deserves just as much respect as Exposé is Mouseposé from Boinx Software. [...] Mouseposé is the poster child for Macintosh shareware. Mouseposé not only fills a niche, but it does exactly what it intends to without any unnecessary clutter. [...] We fell in love so much with Mouseposé that using a Mac without it just isn't the same."

Jason writes: "Mary's parents wanted some video footage to show Eawyn off to some of their relatives and it seemed like a pretty fun project to finally put all the video and pictures we've been taking since September to use. In just over a days time I managed to whip up a fairly large slideshow and a small video compilation of Eawyn [...]. I used Boinx FotoMagico to do the slideshow portion of the project since it allows for cool spins and zooms that go beyond the typical iMovie Ken Burns effect and integrates nicely with iPhoto."

The "Apple Lehrer-Kongress", as the Apple Teacher Institute is called in Germany, was a huge success with both attendees and presenters. iStopMotion was presented in two workshops by Michael Fromm and Boinx Software's Oliver Breidenbach. Watch the "happy faces" movie on the Apple Germany web site, made with FotoMagico.
