I’ve never attempted a stop-motion film before, and that news won’t be a surprise to someone watching “The Chase: a silly storm safari.” It’s primitive, but it’s a fun first try. I just need to cultivate a great deal of patience before I try to shoot another one, given the painstaking frame-by-frame photography in each stop-motion clip.
The film is a combination of short video clips and stop-motion, all shot with my Nikon D7000. I set up the maps and toys, including several miniature storm-chasing vehicles, on our pool table and lit it well. I used shredded cotton balls to make the clouds, and a posterboard for the sky. Check it out:
Chris … I loved this video. Ironically, I have a post with the same title that will run Saturday, July 20th. Yours involves a tornado, mine a bank robber. If you get a chance, pop over and give it a read. Hope you like it as much as I liked your video.
Judy, I just read your story – love the funny twist. I knew “The Chase” was a pretty generic title when I tagged my video with it, but it captured the story well, as the chasers chase the tornado, and then it chases them.
By the way, dear readers, find Judy’s story here: http://earth-rider.com/2013/07/20/the-chase-fiction/
