The old Skateboarder vs. Spaceship plot reanimated with gusto by Stephen Coad. "iStopMotion is straight forward and easy, and being able to use a DSLR camera with it means you can get a high quality looking video," Stephen writes. We love how stop motion animation enables the craziest plots to come to live without a huge production budget. Root for the skateboarder, will he prevail in the end?
"Hold on, lemme take a skelfie." A skeleton waiting to scare people in the park decides to upload a new skelfie to favorite social media.
Lori Escobar’s animated short is part of a bigger project in planning featuring this skeleton on this setting of a park at night. Lori built the characters in rubber clay and constructed an elaborate set. iStopmotion is used to film the scenes with an iPhone 5 as the camera, a setup which Lori finds “really easy”. Adobe Premiere is used for post production and the effects are created in After Effects. Lori also wrote the music in Garage Band.
Stephen Coad created "A high speed police chase in a tiny world" with 1/76 scale cars and black sandpaper for a road.
Stephen is a fan of iStopMoption: "I love the ease of use of iStopMotion. It allows me to get on with making an animation without getting bogged down in the software."
