Claymation movies always fascinated me, especially their creation. I was able to chose the project I had to do for my course 'Visual Effects', so I took this opportunity to attempt a claymation film of my own.
In a team of three we decided to focus on the creation process and chose one of the Minion clips to recreate.
We built a small studio in a darkened room and took the pictures with a Canon EOS 650D. We used plasticine, parts of plastic bottles and styrofoam for creating the figures. For moving them we built our own simple wireframes.
