"I think that you are probably right and I won't need the greenscreen, then I have to think of how to make the background good enough. The idea with the holes in the black paper is nice, but I'm not sure if it will be "compatible"…"
"Hi Evan, good on you and congrats on your film. I haven't taken a look at the full film but will do so. Our first stop motion animated film Skeleton Girl is online because we received funding through Bravo! FACT and were part of CBC's…"
Hi folks, I just researched the Canon A1200, one of the only inexpensive point-and-shoot cameras that has 24p video recording. The A1200 does not have as many features as more expensive point-and-shoots, but it does have great reviews and is capable of recording at 24 frames per second and then playing it back frame by frame forward or in reverse and in slow motion. The file format is Quicktime (MP4). Videos recorded with this camera can be imported into Dragon Frame. Here's a sample video someone took with the A1200:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCa-kLT6f8sThere is a firmware mod for this, which allows the camera to shoot in RAW and have full manual control as well as timelapse script support and HDR-stitching capabilities.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psyMkLFIo8UPretty neat, and more than capable of what I was look at it for (didn't even know about the software mod…See More
"The cloud clay was exciting in principle, but I just couldn't figure out how to make it bendable indefinitely. Don't know enough about its chemical composition so I was not able to reverse-engineer it the way I've been able to do with…"
Hi guys,I'm trying to create a scene which is mostly animation/movement rather than speaking. The way I've been doing my animation so far is by creating script similar to this one http://imgur.com/FvOUgN2 (from an Aardman animation book), and breaking each movement into several parts of where they are due to happen in each frame.I'm just curious to see how other people lay out a script for each frame of a shot? Or do you just storyboard it and work directly from the storyboard?This is something I've kind of been making up as I go, but I'm curious to see how other people do it!Thanks!-Beans.See More
After bringing my stop-motion fable to festivals for the past year and a half, it's finally available to watch online- for a fee ($4 SD/ $6 HD). More on that below.WATCH THE ENTIRE (7 min) SHORT FILM HERE: https://www.nfb.ca/film/fox_and_the_chickadee/BEHIND THE SCENES: www.evanderushie.com/thefoxandthechickadee.phpTRAILER:As independent stop-motion filmmakers, there are more options than ever right now to find funding for our projects. Since the majority of the budget for this film came from my pocket, I've been very fortunate to partner with The National Film Board of Canada for distribution, which means that I share in the profits if you choose to buy the film online.I'm happy to be releasing my film like this, instead of putting it out for free. I feel like there's been a devaluation of short films, and that it's in the hands of us, the filmmakers, to…See More
