I am now officially working on three separate stop motion projects simultaneously. Technically, I’ve finished the picture-taking for two of them, and I just need to add sounds and voices, but in the mean time, I’ve started taking pictures for the Terminator series which I originally cancelled.
Here’s some details on the three projects:
Stop Motion Video
The title is not a placeholder, it is literally a video about making a stop motion video. You’ll follow a main character as his world changes around him based on the script he is given. Here’s one of the pictures:
Stop Motion Screensaver
In this case, I don’t have a working title. I’m attempting to create a stop motion in flash, for the purpose of converting to a screensaver, but I’m not quite sure this will work. Worst case scenario, I’ll release it as a standard stop-motion video, but I really want it to work. If I am successful, I fear it will be a 60 megabyte screensaver if I maintain a decent image quality, but my biggest hindrance is that flash is a bitchy-bitch to work with. Here’s a picture of the scene:
The cancelled project is no longer cancelled! I just started taking pictures today, and I have plans for four to six episodes in total. Only the first one will actually feature the futuristic war, the rest will more closely follow the events in Terminator II. Here’s a shot of the set:
Haven’t had a setup like this since I went to the moon!
