I just click "Post to your blog" on! Most of the stop motions are lovely little pieces I find on the Youtube website!

I have done some stop motion in the past... I worked on models in some short films in Hollywood, years ago, and patience is the key. If you have a video camera, set it up on a tripod (or on a stack of books) and experiment with moving the subject slightly(LEGO Minifig) in between shots. The bigger the motion, the faster the movement will seem.

My little bro used to have the Steven Spielberg LEGO set with the camera and used to make stop-motion MINIFIG battles. They were fantastic & fun!

I would love to post your video if the boys ever decide to try it out!

Glad you enjoy my blog, thank you for reading!
