Animated Stop Motion GIFs!

Clearly, I am losing my mind. :-P.  Or have already lost it. It’s so ridiculous!!  😉

These were originally created for this video.

Some people have commented they could watch it forever. And now they can!

PS: I could not make up my mind about which website to use as my watermark and changed my mind halfway, hence both.

This is an outtake as it didn’t end up in the final video.

I could do a few more (maybe 2 more) but they either aren’t as good or really similar to the ones I already have on here.

You can download by right clicking and saving as. I’m not quite sure why you would want to do that but I was considering sending these to people as attachments lol.

PS: The white one is almost but not quite a unicorn. Has most of the trappings of a unicorn except the horn! Unless it’s a hornless unicorn….

‘Tis mostly true…

We were never quite able to do my original project in the 10-week timeframe so I ended up with this. This is the pre-production (and goofing around) of my film that I hope to do.

Produced in association with Frames Film Project.

Mindmapping/artwork by Kat Thorsen and Jennifer Lyons. I guess this could be alternatively titled as “Jen Hold a Camera and Gets the Frames Staff to Mindmap for Her”.

Things I learned

  • How to use a Mac
  • More Final Cut Pro 7
  • Final Cut hates MP4s
  • Converting and rendering take a while. Get used to it.
  • Shooting in 1080HD isn’t really worth it if you have to shoot in .mts and are editing in an older program. 720HD in AVI is good enough.  (I don’t know if it’s p or i – I have an Olympus E-PM1)
  • Changing light is a pain when your camera can’t change exposure while video recording
