Early Creations

Below are the practice stages of the 2D stop motion process.

Steps:

Basic cut out

  • A basic template was used for the body
  • Cut out of the different parts
  • Parts were joined with thread
  • Once all parts were joined, the body was flattened out with weight
  • White background was used
  • iPhone camera was stationary to take the pictures
  • The paper doll was moved slightly for each shot
  • iMovie software was used

Results:

  • Approximately 20 shots were taken to make about 3 seconds of film
  • Each clip had a duration of 0.2 seconds

Videos:

Trial 1:

  • 23 pictures with a duration of 0.2 seconds
  • Goal: Paper doll was to swing arm while still, tilt head up & down then begin walking forward

Trial 2:

  • 19 pictures with a duration of 0.2 seconds
  • Goal: Have paper doll walk diagonally out of frame while swinging arm

Amendments for future:

  • Use wire to bond the parts
  • May need thicker paper for silhouettes
  • Parts
    • a movable neck is not necessary
    • Legs: need thigh & calfs
    • Forearm is needed
  • Need professional camera with stand
  • Sufficient lighting needed for foreground and background light
