I made some quick stop motions using “I-motion” on my phone, i find this useful for creating quick tries of ideas but i would like to use a DSLR to get better quality animations, even for future tests, to ensure i can see clearly how my ideas are taking shape.
What i learnt from this exercise:
1. get a tripod, or rest your camera on a solid object so that your videos aren’t shakey
2. take more shots than less, i didn’t realise 6 images only made 1 second of film!
3. move objects very small spaces and gradually, because then your animation will seem smoother
