This is my final A-level project for Film Studies. Story is a bit random, but thought i would showcase my stop motion techniques. First time i have ever done a stop motion film so sorry for any mistakes you see.



Hope you enjoy it.

Any Comments welcome.

Thanks

George.

Hi George,

Very interesting. Don't worry about mistakes so early on. As time goes by you'll still make them, but we just learn how to hide them better :D

Also, there was some decent narrative going on for some of it. I would try to develop storytelling as you go along. As you say there are a few little things to fine tune in terms of the motion, but a great first effort.

Good luck,
Tom

Great! Did you just take stills or use video and undercrank/use an intervelometer?

Yep, just stills, over 5,00. I'm glad you liked it. Intervelometer sounds complicated!
