Ever wanted to make your own stop-mo­tion ac­tion movie? Lego has de­signed an app that al­lows you to do just that, all from your smart­phone. This Lego app gives you all the tools you’ll need to cre­ate a mas­ter­piece, from the cam­era func­tion to cap­ture your shots in­side the app, to fil­ters and ef­fects to pol­ish it up.

The app is in­tended to be used with Lego DC Uni­verse Su­per­hero char­ac­ters. But you can use it with al­most any­thing you want. String to­gether a short movie of still images, add mu­sic and fil­ters, and you are only limited by your imag­i­na­tion. But for ar­gu­ment’s sake, if you do have the Lego DC fig­ures, you can choose from themed ti­tle cards – Won­der Woman, Bat­man and Su­per­man – and in­ter­sperse it with the oblig­a­tory “Bam!”, “Biff!” and “Pow!” frames. What­ever fits in with your choice of su­per­hero. It also gives you the op­tion to ap­ply fil­ters, from a comic­book style look to “Arkham” gloom, giv­ing it all a neat sense of au­then­tic­ity.

Team it with the right sound­track – sup­plied by the app and su­per­hero themed of course – and you might have a Youtube hit on your hands.
