sneak peek: stop motion animation


Untitled from Monika Kotus on Vimeo.

Here is a sneak peek of a fun project I've been working on, a stop motion animation or rather my attempt at it.
I've always been fascinated by this technique and wondered if I could create anything of that sort on my own.
One afternoon, while I was making an apple tart, I mounted my old Nikon D70 on a tripod and using wireless remote I shot hundreds of pictures. My hubby converted all the photos and synchronized them with music using Vegas Pro.
I can't even describe how exciting it was to see all those still images "come to life"!
Now we're working on the ending, can't wait to see it finished.
I know, it is a little amateurish but it made us smile, so it's all worth it!
The music we used here is by Allie Moss from her "Late Bloomer" album, which I've been listening to obsessively.
Hope you all had a great weekend.
