Week 8 stop motion animation

1 November 2018

Final video

Behind the scenes

After the initial brainstorming session, Jiwon, Jenny, and I split up the storyboard into three sections which we would each "direct". I directed the cucumber chopping sequences and put together the sound effects and background music.

We shot the animation on my dining table since I had a camera setup and some lights available. It was nice to get out of the ITP floor for a little while. After we got 20-25 seconds worth of still frames here, Jiwon later illustrated her section of the story board on her tablet and I compiled the final animation in Premiere.

This was my first time making a stop motion animation and, while tedious at times, I think it was pretty fun!
