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).

Stats:

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
