(2008) Top selling Thanksgiving HD E-Card for 5 years straight. Done for HD Greeting at the time. All projects were realized on very low budgets and real short time frames. This stopmotion was designed, sculpted, composted, filmed and edited in under 1 week! This was created well before angry birds came into existence. Wish i thought of making it into a video game...
Production still. 1 frame of the loop created for the flying chickens. Stopmotion has to be carefully planned ahead so you can animate to elements that are not there. Itsusually not in the budget to reshoot. A few seconds takes all week and even longer. I animate in 1's for the most part. Which means i take one photo per frame of film. So at 24 frames per second(fps) i take 24 individual HD pictures for one second of film. In that frame I have to move the character ever so little, and sometimes moves cameras for moving shots and rack focuses ect.. Very time consuming-But well worth it and very satisfying in the end.
