This is my blog that follows the making of our of music videos. The blog posts related to my first stop-motion animated music video for the song "See The World" start from this post.

First day of shooting....

I finally started shooting today. I've started with a lot of the shots that don't require a lot of complex animation work so that I can ease myself into it (in theory). I managed to get 14 shots finished (by shooting 394 images).

I had a bit of trouble trying to figure out how to do one shot that required the camera to move. I ended up taping the camera tripod to an office chair that I was using and very carefully moved it between frames. It was quite frustrating trying to get it to move only the smallest amount. It was made even more frustrating by the fact that it was the longest shot I did today.

I'm fairly happy with the results. I may increase the frame rate for this shot to make it smoother (I shot more frames than I needed, so it should work). Notice that the shot doesn't flicker! I haven't put this shot through any post-processing, so I think that the completely light sealed room has fixed my problems.
