This is my first solo stop motion shot, the first time I've done two characters, and the first time I've animated a camera move. It took a total of 3 hours of planning and 12.5 hours to execute (spread across two days).
I already see how I'd do things better next time, but I'm pretty ecstatic. This is definitely some of the most fun I've ever had animating.
And here are some pictures of it in process for ya:
|The sets for this film are absolutely gorgeous. This is an external one of the field, complete with plow-able soil.|
|My beloved x-sheet, and the only way I was able to do this.|
|Channeling some good energy!|
|With the actor. He's such a pleasure to work with.|
