This week we met at JP's digital media classroom for our class. We were exposed to different digital media tool, tips, and tricks. I think after this meeting I am much more likely to try something new with green screen, stop motion, and getting creative with tripods and lighting! I think we often hesitate to try something until we have at least seen someone else follow the steps in person. It was fun AND productive!
I took the opportunity to use the lighting and tripods in order to film a stop motion sequence for my video. With Lisa's, Julie's, and Rafa's help, I was able to get this section complete for my capstone:
It was really fun and easy to use the iPad app "Stop Motion."
At this point, I have all of the images and script I need in the movie, I just need to somehow slow down the images because it seems a bit rushed in certain parts when the images come up too often. I am not sure how to do this, because 90 seconds seems to be a hard limit and I think I really need about 100 seconds. I'm afraid to go over, so it's super stressing me out to find a way to condense everything without rushing. iMovie allows more tweaking and control, however it seems a bit more challenging to edit. I spent hours and hours last weekend trying to get it just right, only to see that it still looks rushed. More cutting to do!
