I am making a stop motion film for my high school senior project. One of the requirements is that I have an outside expert to provide me with guidance, and I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help me out? The only real requirement is to sign a form and have at least three conversations with me, but I will definitely need some advice. I'm also required to do research on my own so I won't be relying on you for every answer, however there are some places where I will need help from someone with experience.

As of now I'm looking for a software to use on a mac operating system. 

Thanks for your help!

If you mean framegrabbing software on a Mac, I would recommend Dragonframe.
Other software I use is Audacity (free sound editor), After Effects (for greenscreen keying, and other effects), and Final Cut Pro 6 for final editing.
I would volunteer as "expert", but having conversations might be difficult. I'm in Australia. My internet connection is slow, with constant dropouts, so that Skype or Facetime don't really work. But see how you go, finding someone.
