[Contest] [Video] Creative Workshop - Make Your Own Stop - Motion

2021-12-21 03:04:18

Hey Mi Fans,

The Workshop is back with a new episode! Ready to boost your creativity?


Today we are talking about Stop Motion.

What is it?


It is a filmmaking technique that consists in manipulating objects and photograph them in small increments so that when we play the frames together, they appear to be moving independently.


A very common technique is using plasticine (Claymation) so that the puppets can be moved easily. In fact, many famous movies have been made with this technique: The Nightmare Before Christmas, Chicken Run, James and the Giant Peach and many more famous movies…


But we don’t necessarily need to mold the puppets to do a stop motion, we can animate any object we have at home. In fact, this time we did it with a Xiaomi Mi 11. Check it out!




Now as usual, in every episode of the Workshop, you have to try doing it!

Let’s have a look at the process behind the scenes!




Clearer now?

To recap, we need:
-       The props (objects that you want to animate)
-       A tripod, or any support that will keep your phone stable (this is very very important)
-       A Xiaomi Smartphone to use as a camera
-       Any Stop Motion App (you can download it on your store) we used one called Stop Motion Studio


TIPS:
- KEEP YOUR SMARTPHONE STABLE AND STEADY IN THE SAME POSITION
- PLAN THE MOVEMENTS OF THE OBJECT BEFOREHAND


To start, your set should look something like this.



1) Once you are ready, start taking photos one by one every time after you move the object.

2) Keep the movement very small, so you will obtain a smoother animation.

3) Again


4) Once your animation is done, click on the thee lines on the upper left corner of the screen.

5) Save your video and export it as an “ANIMATED GIF”

6) Post it in the comments section below this thread to join this contest!


NOW IS YOUR TURN!
