Learning with Some Galapagoofs

What’s the deal with evolution, anyway? Take it from Charles Darwin and a goofy tortoise – it’s pretty simple!

In “The Galapagoofs!,” animator Mike Holmes introduces the vaudeville comedy duo in an iStopMotion animation made entirely out of felt.

“It couldn’t have been easier,” he says. “I was introducing my girlfriend to animating, and iStopMotion really made it painless and a lot of fun. We’ve got a lot of plans!”

We love the little touches Mike added to make his iStopMotion animation seem more realistic. Don’t forget small movements – like the tortoise wiggling its toes, Darwin’s moving eyebrows and the fluttering bird in the background – to keep your viewers engaged. Maybe they’ll even forget they’re not in prehistoric times!
