This was my first stop-motion film, made for a niece's birthday. She's 11, so there are 11 stamps making the design, and the animation runs 1:11. The music is also in 11/8. Her father plays drums and marimba, so I substituted marimba for celesta and trombones for bassoon in my jazz improvisation of the Tchaikovsky 'Sugar Plum Fairy' theme from the Nutcracker (a family favorite).


305 animation frames
Most animation is at 10 fps (1 frame every tenth of a second)
Approximately 11 hours total production time (about 5 hours of photography/animation)
Camera: Sony Alpha a300
Edited in Windows MovieMaker
Audio recorded and mixed in Presonus Studio One 2
