Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Positioning the cameras, part of Getting Started with Stop Motion Animation.
…We've got our shooting environment.…We've got plenty of light.…we're ready to start recording.…Now, if you've ever watched a movie, you'll detect…that they use several different angles to tell the story.…After all, only seeing the action from one angle…is a lot like watching a live action play.…While it's good entertainment, it's not as entertaining as…it could be when it comes to dynamic storytelling.…Every TV show and movie that's out there tends…to combine multiple angles together to tell the story.…One of my favorite books is called The Visual…Story from Bruce Block, and you could check it out.…
It walks you through the whole process of understanding how…shot composition is useful for things like movies and television shows.…What I'm going to do is position the cameras to tell a good story.…Let's start with our phone.…Now, this particular device here is on a small tripod.…And while you might be used to standing that up tall, it's not very interesting.…What I want to do is create a sense of dynamic energy…
