Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing a shooting subject, part of Learning Stop Motion Animation.
…Now that you understand the core concepts I want you to pick a subject to shoot.…Now it's totally up to you what this is going to be.…Today, I'm going to play with some toys.…This is an easy way to get started.…Now, you can grab some building blocks and build something up over time.…But ideally, you're going to look for something…that has a few points of articulation.…Just find something that you can actually bend or pose.…Today I'm going to be using some robots.…These are things I like to play with, with my son.…And you'll note that the robot can be bent.…I've got some wings here that move.…
We can move the arms.…We have a few points of articulation.…But it doesn't matter.…Just find a toy or something you have laying around…the office or the home that you could bend or pose.…All it needs to do is be able to take…on a slightly different shape as you move or animate it.…And if you're pressed for ideas this is that perfect excuse you've been…looking for to run down the street and visit your neighborhood toy store.…
