Linda and Tim - Stop Motion Video Project  

Posted in

This is a little project I tried a few weeks ago. It's stop-motion video produced completely with linux.

To create this, I used a canon 20D with a 50mm f1.8 lens. I set the camera in drive mode, and took sequences of images. To keep the buffer up, I shot in small JPG. To keep the exposures consistent image to image, I shot in manual mode (manual WB as well).

I resized the images to 640x480, added a slight vignette, and desaturated the images to give an old-movie feel. (The batch took 7+ hours)

I then compiled the 12,000 images into a movie with StopMotion. The resulting video was edited using Cinelerra. I added the "aging TV" effect to further enhance the vintage feel, and trimmed the 28 minute video to fit the music.

Hope you like it!
