Wandering Worklight!

Posted January 25, 2016 11:26 AM by Del the cat

I've always fancied trying stop motion animation...
Mrs Cat gave me a LED Torch/Worklight... it seems to have a mind of it's own!
I should have made it fall over on it's back at the end after it's looked at the bow I'm working on!.

It was quite quick and fun to do. I just wanted to try out the process.

Loads of still pics dragged into Windows Live Movie Maker, the duration of each set to 0.1 seconds (some a bit longer like when the light comes on).
Now I've tried it, I might do something more adventurous... with a dish and spoon.

I can see that,.... when it came to stop action work, I loved Ray Harryhausens work, Jason and the Argonauts. One of my favorite movies.

Well that certainly sheds a little light on the animation topic.
