    Default One for the kids

    I have not been my around much but yesterday we visited our nephew and niece and whilst everyone else were playing a game I was teaching my nephew how to do stop motion animation. I only did a little bit but this is what I put together for them today.

    Its my first attempt at a voice over as well

    I really like your voice, fits perfectly. My only advice would be to change the sound track as the singing interferes with the voice over.

    Nice to see you're still around Shrimpy. Stop motion is so time consuming. As your first go it was quite good. You did a good job with the voice over. Very "Watch with Mother". Just right. I like the lens flare effect but may be it was a little over used. I noticed you managed to keep the lighting even throughout. What lighting did you use?

    Nice one Shrimpy.

    Hi Midnight

    I imagine I will be in full flow again quite soon, things are quieting down my end of the woods.

    As for the stop motion, thanks for the comments. I didn't use any lighting at all. The stop motion was never meant to be turned into anything, they were all playing a board game (which I hate being the grump I am) and so I was flopped on the floor looking at what all the fuss had been about these hamsters when the thought took me. I just put my digital camera on a tripod and started snapping but only to demonstrate to my nephew how it was done. He has recently taken up video making but currently only doing fan movies of his favourite games. I am trying to tease him out into filming the real world.

    Shrimpy, I saw it the other day on UTUBE and it made me smile. Clever way of increasing the length by the way.

    Where you been hiding you old rascal...Good to see you back!
    Don't think Nick Park has any worries on animation, however the voice over was amasing.
    Bet the kids thoroughly enjoyed it...I did.
