The first project will be a 3 minute stop motion animation that will stay as close as possible to the Intro cut-scene of the game. It last about 3 minutes and 12 seconds
The film will use puppets made of metal armature. These will be purchased already made. The movie will be shot with a Digital Still Camera, Canon EOS 550D or equivalent, leveraging from the "live view" feature that have appeared in recent models. The project will also be shot with Dragon StopMotion frame grabber software.
I know... I have not take the cheapest options for a beginner project... I feel a bit like a spoiled kid doing an expensive shortcut into pro equipment, with no hard-won wisdom and experience to back it up. Well... guilty as charge!
