Stop Motion Videos!
I just wrote a long homework story over at Dad's blog.
I still draw and take pictures but the thing I like to do best now is stop-motion animation.
I have like 100 clone troopers and Justice League guys and I do stories with them on Dad’s old camera.
It is hard work because you have to take really short shots, then move the guys a little, then shoot again. And THEN when you’re all done with that you have to edit them on the computer so it looks like they’re moving.
I’m trying to learn how to add in special effects like in real movies and just figured out how to do lazer blasts and music. I put them up on Youtube so you can see.
I helped my sister do one too.
I wish I was as good as the other videos because they look really good. I just need to practice.
How long did it take you to make one movie? Those laser shots look really cool. I tried stop motion animation before, too, and it took SO long, but it was definitely fun! I'm glad you're enjoying yourself. Whatever art you do, you're going to do it better if it makes you happy. It's good that you're doing what you want to do with it.
Can't wait to see all the awesome videos you make!
Have you seen www.brickfilms.com? They have a lot of info you may find useful. Just so you don't have to reinvent the wheel when you're filming.
Looking forward to see more of your vids as you post them here.

I love doing stop motion - you are right, it can be really tedious, but then when you get done, it is so cool!
I can't wait to see more of what you are doing!

I particularly liked that you used Star Wars action figures, those guys need more fun in their lives, don't they? It can't all be about stopping the Evil Empire, sometimes they just need to spend some time dancing.
My son's older than you are, but he's very interested in acting, and has friends in college who are film majors (studying to be film-makers, in some instances). I hope you stay interested making films, you are off to a great start, and have a great imagination.
Maybe someday you'll be a world famous director, and I'll be remembering, "Oh yes, I remember his early work!" and remember how delightful it was.
This was a lot of work, wasn't it? I'm so glad Hilary put it up as a Post of the Week, and congratulations to you on the very well deserved mention :-)
