Over the summer I put together a short little stop motion using Sheridan College's studio and a whole bunch of dollar store felt.

Here is the result!



The wonderful voice acting was done by the talented and hilarious Animator and Voice Actor Davey Swatpaz. I asked him to voice act for me after I had a lovely chat with him on my podcast (https://terryibele.com/animation-indu...). If you're interested in seeing more of Davey's work, please check out his channel: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeU7HSDElFiMgjXcmc-4b0A

If you'd like to know more details about how I created this, read on!

The animation was shot on 1s at 24 frames per second.

I used Dragonframe and a Canon DSLR to capture all the frames

The background is a big white plastic sheet with 4 studio lights pointed at the ceiling above to get a nice and even bounce light to cover everything

Everything you see is made from dollar store items - felt, beads, plasticine, shiny paper, styrofoam balls, etc. I think I spent $50 overall on all materials and I have mountains left over (like I needed 2 blue pompoms, but I had to buy a giant bag of like 150)

I edited out all rigs in PhotoShop (oof!) and compiled the video in Premiere

Overall, this took me 3 and a half months to complete. I spent two full months shooting 3-4 times a week (full 8+ hour days), then I did post in my spare time over the next month (3-4 hours a week)

I hope you enjoy! If you'd like to follow more of my projects, I'm most active on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/terryibele/
