A while ago, I had the idea to make a stop motion animation. It took a while to take the idea from concept to completion, but here we are! (The video is at the bottom of this post.) I wanted to give a little insight into what went into making this project.
First of all:
What is a stop motion animation?
Stop motion is a method of animating where you take a picture for each frame of the video. So, for example, if you wanted to animate a toy Lego jumping across the screen, you would position the Lego, snap a picture, reposition him in the next pose, snap a picture, and repeat.
