Nature Animation Challenge: DAY FIVE!

Today’s challenge was quick–but necessary to the animation process! Scavenging around the house, I found my lighting and supports (big box, tissue box) for my backdrop and camera. Here is my resulting stage, set and ready for production:

Tomorrow begins the busy work! For tomorrow’s challenge, take the series of still images for your stop animation.


1. Remember to make small movements/changes to your characters and set in between camera shots, in order to make the resulting animation more smooth.

2. Make sure your digital camera is firmly attached to it’s tripod (or makeshift stand). Using masking tape can be pretty helpful.

3. Use at least 2 light sources in order to eliminate shadows in your animation.

‘Til tomorrow…happy explorations!
