There’s no denying the fact that stop-motion animations are awesome. It doesn’t matter if you’re working with the stick figure on the pack of Post-Its or something more cinematic, they’re fun to create and even more fun to watch. If you’re looking to jump start a career in stop-motion movies, or just looking to have some fun, the new Frameographer iPhone App is a great use of three hard-earned dollars. Set your scene. Take a picture. Move something a little. Take a picture. Lather, rinse, repeat until the desired effect is achieved. When you’re done taking pictures (with the front or back camera), mess with the fps or just export it to the Camera Roll in 720p HD quality. Then you just upload it to your favorite video sharing service and wait for the phone to ring with job offers.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
