Subject Yes. You can do this with OpenOffice. (MysteryGuitarMan video with OpenOffice Mac)
Date Fri, 10 Aug 2012 00:24:00 GMT
If you don't know this guy's work you should really check it out.  He
has over 2 million YouTube subscribers.  It is hard to describe, but
I'd say it is 1/3 one-man band, 1/3 stop motion animation, 1/3 green
screen work.  And 100% fun.

His latest video is called "Stop-Motion Excel".  But if you look
closely you see that he is actually using OpenOffice for the Mac:

And here is the "behind the scenes" video that explains how he did it:

This is a fun video and good for showing friends and family what you
are working on.  Let's try to get the world out, via the social
networking site, both project's and personal.   And if you want to add
a comment to the YouTube post pointing out that this is OpenOffice and
it can be downloaded for free from www.openoffice.org, then great!
This is a good way to introduce the product to more users.

Bonus points for adapting an old ASCII Art algorithm to generate a
spreadsheet from a photo.  If anyone can do that I'll interview them
for a blog post and show of their work.

Regards,

-Rob
