Stop motion gives an animated start to the latest Java Post Production for the SATCC (Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission)
Topics: Java Blog
Entitled "Outfit of the Day" and shot on location in Saskatoon, this commercial was created using the stop-motion animation technique, where objects and people are moved ever-so-slightly, photographed as a still image, moved slightly again, and then photographed again, over and over.
For this particular "stuttering" effect, we shot 8 separate still images for each second of finished video. It was a meticulous and time consuming task - which included several days of camera tests with paper cutouts to arrive at the proper frame rate - but everyone was very happy with the the final result.
