What role did I play in this production?
In the pre-production stage I played a few roles. I logged the first meeting we had (the original meeting with Adam Perrott), drew the storyboard, helped write the script, helped make the filming timeline, made the model of the snail, and acquired sound and music files.
I animated all the characters during the filming.
I edited the footage, added the music and sound, inserted titles and credits, produced it onto a DVD and screened it in front of an audience.

What problems did we encounter?
Fortunately, after the last assignment I had learnt my lesson and with the rest to the teams agreement we appointed a project manager who was wonderful in keeping everything in order and on track. The only real problem we encountered was that we lost one of our members in the middle of the production so all his jibs had to be divided out among the rest of the team. A few other problems included; the dialogue sound not being overly loud so we had to sort that out and re-produce our video.

Was I satisfied with the finished product?
I was very satisfied with the finished product. Taking into consideration that we had less than 3 weeks to complete the entire project from start to finish, I would say I am very pleased with the outcome. The audiences we showed our production to really enjoyed it.

Overall thoughts
This project went better than planned and really enjoyed every minute of it.

About Stop Motion

There are various forms of stop motion. There is stop motion of objects or people and there is stop motion with clay people (more commonly known as claymaiton).

This video is very clever and one of my favorite. The creator took real images (in the same way one would take digital images for an on-screen stop motion video) and strung them together around his house thus bringing the pictures to life and telling a story through stop motion. Very creative. [22/6/10 20:12]

Welcome back everyone!

Its been a long time! Firstly, what do you think of the new blog? Anyway, in the past few weeks I have been really busy finishing off assignments and beginning new ones.
