Halloween theme stop motion animation with Maya Pruitt.
Story: Maya wanted to work on something related to Halloween and suggested we experiment with these chocolate eyeballs. We developed the stories together, thinking about their motivations, tensions and climax points.
Working process: story writing, storyboarding, stop motion photo taking (using Dragonframe), After Affects and Premiere Pro
Learning: I have some experience working with Photoshop timeline but this is my first time using Dragonframe and After Effects. Everything was new to me including the concept of keyframes.
- dragonframe is very efficient! always take more photos because it is difficult to set up
- walking cycles are more difficult than it looks (to make anything look natural actually)
- the editing is much easier done on premiere
