Moviestorm for education

Simply make 3d animated movies on your school computer

The software is energising students in schools of all levels across the world, as a fast, fun and flexible cross-curriculum film-making tool. It is relevant to a wide variety of subjects, from languages and literature to science, music and media studies.

"I created a video where a character was presenting the topic in front of relevant images and played that to the classroom. I could just as easily have done that in real life but somehow being on film meant that the content engaged the kids completely in a way that a simple classroom presentation couldn’t have done."

How can Moviestorm help you?

Film schools and media courses

Moviestorm will empower your students like no other tool. They will be able to visualise their scripts and shoot complex scenes that would have been impossible without budget, crew or cast. They can be the whole film crew and develop their personal film making skills, whilst pre-vizualising their script will lead to cost savings in both production and pre-production.

What our customers say

 

"Moviestorm is an exciting alternative to existing animation software that is currently available. It's intuitive interface, richly textured environments and characters plus its fully functional directorial suite makes it an impressive tool for planning, directing and editing animated movies. My students are already discovering new ways to utilise Moviestorm for class assignments, choosing this over other presentation styles. Who wouldn't want a fully made animated movie to communicate your understanding on a given subject? The tutorial support provided is a neat addition to an already impressive package."

Steven Caldwell, MLC School, NSW, Australia

 

 

"With the increasing emphasis on students being media literate and being prepared for today’s knowledge economy it is essential that students of all ages engage with industry standard tools to be able to understand and create resources of the highest quality. This is where Moviestorm really stands head and shoulders above the competition."

Adrian Hall, former Programme Director Personalised Content, UK DFES
