Stop Motion Animation


Animation is something that has always interested me, ever since I was a kid. I used to make little 10 second animations on my dads SE Macintosh in the early nineties. And it is what made me want to go into the Digital Design world, work with flash and make little movies. But somwhere I lost may way and stopped creating animations. I have decided to change that and start up again. Today I was tinkering Stop Motion Animation. Something that I find facinating. I love that you can take everyday objects and bring them to life and give them character just by adding movement. Anyway. Here are the two clips i made today.

And if that didnt impress you. I highly reccomend checking out this amazing StopMotion animation. This is how it should be done:

Okay so I hacked your post, but i thought it would be silly to post this vid in a post of iots own (it’s clearly not woth it) This is a little stop motion i did as a test the other day 😀 Great minds!




OK, I updated this post rather than making a new entry aswell. I’m just adding a 4 second amination on here. This was a test I did with my new Nikon D60 to see if i could create an HD stop motion and try out the new HD functionality on Youtube. I created this one through the “import as sequence” functionality in AfterEffects. Its running at 24 fps.

Stop and go!

    I just dropped it and timed the capture. I had to try it a few times. The same with the jumping liqourice. You can use some invicible string aswell but i was to lazy. besides i got some nice motion blur with this effect. Nice cursor anim by the way 🙂 . cudos

    To be able to view it in HD. you need to click on to get to the Youtube page. And then you can click on the HD button. If you’re into that sort of thing 😉
