Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting in reverse, part of Learning Stop Motion Animation.
…We're ready to start shooting our animation.…What we're going to do here is have the banana split…apart, become sliced, and remove those slices as they're getting cut.…When we're all done, that's going to play backwards,…and it's going to look like the banana's re-forming.…Let's also tweak the lighting in the middle of the scene.…To begin with, I'm going to start with the light turned off.…This is going to look like the banana has now climbed into bed Pulled…up the covers for the night and is ready to go to sleep.…Additionally, since I am going to see my hands, in the…shot we'll take advantage of voice activation to record the frames.…
Here we go.…Let's turn on the recording.…Capture four.…Now we'll turn the light on.…Capture four.…Capture two.…Capture two.…Capture two.…
I'm going to use that guideline for the tilt-shift effect to position the banana.…Capture two.…Capture two.…Lets insert a slight pause.…Capture four.…And now, after all this time, my hands get to be in the shot on purpose.…Capture two.…Capture.…Capture.…
