People who know things have proven what we’ve always known in our hearts: making art positively impacts communities. Through creation, we gain individual confidence, engage socially with others and take an interest in the world around us. Here at In-House, we’re fueled by that magic. We believe in it. And we want to spread the joy. So what is FRAME, and what does it have to do with this maker manifesto? FRAME is a tool we made in no small part to make art-making more accessible. Because getting what’s in your head out to the world is a beautiful thing.
As In-House’s first-ever internal app, FRAME is the little stop motion tool that could. Generally, stop motion is difficult to get right — it requires equipment, lots of patience, fancy software and so on. But with FRAME, anyone can create somewhat technical animations. Just take a photo on the app, and an ‘onion-skin’ overlay appears, making it easy to frame every following shot. From there, choose the images you want to animate, crop, and edit. Then, export.
