Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Essential animation techniques for beginners, part of Getting Started with Stop Motion Animation.
…Let's add a little bit more animation here.…In that last movie, we just moved the two characters together.…But there wasn't a lot of motion.…Now, these particular creatures are built out of building blocks.…So there's not a lot of movement.…But looking closely at my subject, I see I can…do things like reposition the tail or bend the ears.…And by adding a little bit of variety side to side, we can have some fun.…I've gotta few extra bricks here.…So I can adjust the tilt or canting the characters just slightly in between.…
So they feel like they're not quite so static.…Also in that last scene, every time I touch…the screen, we're getting a little bit of vibration.…And that's just something you want to cut down on.…You probably have a pair of headphones that came with your device.…And if you could pick up one of the typical Apple ones that has…the built-in mic, or the Play/Pause button,…this can actually work as a remote trigger.…Just plug it in to your device.…Now, I've adjusted the shot so it's a bit lower and closer to the scene.…
