I do think that in any transaction there is a middle ground where both parties can be happy with the deal. It sounds like you're willing to do this project for your friend just for the experience and joy of doing it, which is admirable but at the same time you want and need to be compensated for your time and the expenses you've accrued. If it were me in this situation I would make the video and give it to my friend and ask that they compensate me in a way that they can feel good about.
I came upon the stop motion world a couple of years ago and was immediately enthralled with all the possibilities and multiple disciplines the craft has to offer. I like being creative in many different ways and stop motion animation provides more opportunities than any other art form that I can think of. You can find many good tutorials on YouTube as well as the resource section of this site.
I look forward to seeing your progress and will be happy to offer any suggestions if I can.
