Stop Motion

Last week I began playing with the idea of stop motion videos.

I’m a photographer by passion, but my BA degree is in filmmaking and I miss making things that move, and I’ve decided it’s time to begin blending the two arts. My hope is that if I take regular stop motion videos, I’ll begin to ease myself back into using video as second nature.

Here’s a very rough test clip I took while I was having tea with Becky in Alfriston one afternoon.

After tea we wandered down to the sea and Becky took a couple clips of me – testing for a project we’re planning.

I just cobbled these together, animating them using Lightroom’s slideshow function. Doing it simply like this makes it fun and easy, and I learn as I play. Eventually I’ll go back to using my actual film-editing software, but for now I’m just enjoying watching my pictures move.
