15 (who?)
Needed to do some stop motion to help fill out my animation showreel.

Naturally the twins doing a butchered short attempt at the lucky star dance was the way to go.

No music though because it doesn't need it for the showreel (I did test Lucky Star against it, it falls out of sync cause i animated too fast near the end of the first sequence, but it doesn't really matter).
Can't use music that isn't mine on DA anyway so meh.

Enjoy I guess.

Transformers belong HasTak (more Takara in this case because they're Henkei. Mmmmm chrooooome)

Wow 3 to 4 hours that's something I cant do.
I am not the patient type when it comes to making stop animation.
I tried making a stop motion movie, but only made about 3 minutes worth of video and it sucks. It took me 10 minutes. To many mistakes on it. Fun part about it was that it was made in 3D (With N3DS) made some parts come out of the screen. Resolution on handeld camera not bad.

I can say this Deathcomes4u you have skills in making Stop Motion Animation.

Why thankyou ^.^ Though i did just complete a masters in animation at uni, so i need to be proficient in stuff like this ^.^;
With stop motion you can rarely go wrong if you make the movement increments really small, but it is a challenge keeping figures from falling over, and of course you put in all the time and effort and have no idea while you do if it'll come out looking any good or not.

Having a good tripod helps. Also not having boobs that push the camera between shots when you reach over to move the figures helps XD
But anyway, thankyou!

That's Nice
Transformers the Musical.
How did it take to make?
That's my Question

Only a couple hours, somewhere between 3-4 I think? Stop motion is fast compared to cell.

:O wow that was really great stop motion! I really want to have a go at doing this but alas I have a shait camera and most of my figures aren't that posable. I would totally do the Dragon Ball Z fusion dance with Thundercracker and one of the insecticons (I forgot which one it was in the movie he got combined with) to make Cyclonus.

it's quite easy really, you can do it with any run of the mill camera. I could probably do it with the webcam in my laptop, the crappy quality would be a 'stylistic choice' XD
You could try out doing some other stuff before trying dancing, stop mo is heaps fun ^.^ and relatively quick and painless compared to hand drawn. Even if you don't have the software for compiling the frames, you could shoot them over to me, it takes five seconds on AE (Now that I figured out how to use the 'sequence layers' menu, which i REALLY wish I'd been able to find while doing my major >.<; )

Awesome work!
The twins are perfect for this xD
(Next time, using a tripod would be helpful I guess. If you ever do stop-motion again x'D)
