Supporting teachers is our priority


Smoovie is the ideal tool for stop motion animation in the classroom.  Simple and intuitive to use, it lets pupils be creative without having to struggle with complicated software.  Smoovie just works!


Stop motion animation is widely recognised as an innovative and valuable learning tool which can be used right across the curriculum.  It gives pupils a fun and interesting way to explore and express their ideas on any subject; be it maths or music, science or social studies.

Smoovie encourages creative thinking and teamwork.

The intuitive interface is so easy to use and makes learning fun.

An ideal way for children of all ages to explore their imagination.

Deeper Learning

Stop motion animation has been proven to encourage deeper learning, whatever the subject.  The act of learning involves committing information to memory and this task is much more easily accomplished using animation and narration together rather than narration alone.


Using stop motion animation in the classroom creates a truly dynamic learning environment in which pupils can express themselves at so many different levels, both independently and as a team.


More and more teachers are discovering just how powerful a learning tool stop motion animation is, and Smoovie is the perfect partner to make it happen.
