The First Stop Motion Video I've Ever Made

Hey! This is the first stop motion video I made when I was about 15 years old. It was also a time when I didn't understand lighting, but years later, I'm still proud of it!


  1. Love Carla Bruni! Nice video. I definitely had that monkey beanie baby. You said this took you ~4 hours? Did you take all the pictures in order of the film, or did you do some first and some after so you could review?

  2. Thanks! It took me more like 6-7 hours because I didn't really know what I was doing. I took all the pictures in order of the film. However, using the flash was taking too long, so that's when I decided to just go sans flash, and then it went much quicker. Hence the weird change in lighting, haha.

  3. Super Awesome! I'm thinking about doing a stop motion for one of my videos. Can't believe how long this stuff takes! Any tips or links to helpful tutorials for a newbie?

    Also, my brother and I had a huge collection of monkey stuffed animals as kids. There was this brand of stuffed animals that were also puppets so you could control their mouths and arms with your fingers....I wonder what happened to those.
