1. During the shooting of my thesis, a 10 minute stop-motion animated piece titled, "sweet dreams," I took a quick isight video each day that I filmed a scene to document what I had shot, the happenings of the day, or just my mood.

    I took 30 videos over the course of 78 days of production.

    All strung together, the videos amount to a total of 40 minutes. Here I've ordered them chronologically, and edited each one down to make a 12 minute compilation.

  2. Our last 4 weeks stitched together. Mainly timelapse of setting up each shot. Music: The Goblin Band - Glen Gray And The Casa Loma Orchestra. We shot using a Nikon D90 and Dragon Stop Motion software which I highly recommend. After Effects was used to sequence the images.
