This is my first video on Vimeo entitled "Dream Weaver" and was inspired by my life experiences and great animators here in Vimeo. This stop-motion video is the best I can do at the moment with limited resources. It might seem poor and lacks quality, but really was a labor of love. I can see myself as a beginner in all aspects of animation, but I'm willing to learn more and looking forward to better projects in the future.
This first episode entitled "Mr. Brown" just introduces the main character. It took me around two days taking all the shots needed to finish a two-minute clip. I used 3 basic cameras, Sanyo Xacti CG20, Logitech C310 webcam and Nikon Coolpix P2. (You can see the different video textures using these cameras.)
I'm trying to save some money to buy a DSLR and a better stop-motion software. Right now I have to be contented with the webcam software. For editing I used Vegas Movie Studio and a little bit of After Effects (which I'm still learning).
Most of the props were made of recycled materials which took me several months to build.
