Little Lamp Gets a Friend by Achim Breidenbach. Sound and Music by Paul Goodyear.
Everybody at Boinx Software is working extremely hard to wrap up the development of FotoMagico 2, a new iStopMotion version and more. Meet us at PMA07 in Las Vegas where we will showcase the brand new FotoMagico 2!
Little Lamp Gets a Friend is Achim's new stop motion movie and debuts with this newsletter. Excellent sound and music were contributed once more by Paul Goodyear. We should should probably enter it into the Cuppa Coffee Contest or the Animation Magazine's ilaugh.com shortfest.
On the horizon: the future of stop motion animation and exciting things with Quartz Composer. More about that in next month's newsletter.
Your Boinx Software Team:
Oliver, Achim, Vera, Michael, Florian, Peter, Werner & Stefan.
