After getting my D40 This past christmas, my cousin and I wanted to make a new stop motion with it. each year, we have made a stop motion, and each one has been better than the last. We Have done it again, But in Super Size. Our Previous Record was a little over 3 minutes long. We have completly blown that away this time around. Our Newest one is 10.5 minutes long.
Path: It starts around my cousin's house for the first couple of minutes, then goes around the lake he lives on, then to an oil well, and back to his house and into the lake. He comes out of the lake at the park down the road from my house, and he goes to my house, then to the local college: NMC. After touring NMC, he takes a trip up Eastern Avenue, past the Elementary school, and into the parking lot of the High School : Traverse City Central High. From there he goes back through NMC, and to the closest gas station for a Snack. He then goes back to my House, through the living room, and drives our Garbage can down the road. He goes into the bushes, and comes out of the bushes across the highway from the gas station, and drives off.

Animated light paintings of a little piano player performing. Filmed at night with the lovely I-5 and San Diego skyline in the background. I would like to thank everyone for the fantastic feedback I have received lately. To answer a few questions, I wrote the music and recorded it first. The frames were photographed with a Canon Rebel using 20-30 second exposure time. I used a small green LED keychain light to draw each frame. Once all the positions were photographed they were strung together and synchronized to the music in After Effects.
