Re: ToY: Marooned
Thanks guys! I apologise for posting on my own thread a lot, but I have something which I think is worth saying. 2 things in fact.
1) Just went through all the files, at the bottom of istopmotion it says how many frames were taken. After some quick maths (quick because I had a calculator!) I found that I took a whopping 18,296 frames. That's just for the raw animation, not the titles or credits. Admittedly I did cut some out, but the amount of frames in the actual film must be near 18,000! WOW!
2) Reading through this and some of my youtube comments it seems a lot of you liked the in-camera effects. I'm glad to hear that. I also think it's worth saying that every single one of those 18,296 frames was totally un edited. Everything you see in this film is in-camera, all except for the fish-eye effect I added to the telescope. The rest had no colour correction, no filters, no special effects, not even a frame of masking. The telescope was even made by blue tacking a toilet roll tube to my camera (it didn't look that good, but it was okay I suppose). I'm going to make all my films like this from now on because I think it's easier to be a bit more creative by doing this. I'll use masking (when I find a way to get istopmotion to stop importing in the weird aspect ratios), green-screening, etc, but I can't ever see myself using a muzzle flash or explosion effect, because I think bricks and cotton wool look so much better. I'm glad you all liked them too.
And I just wanted to thank everyone for all their comments. I'm surprised that I haven't had one 'It's too long' comment.
So yeah, I'm pretty happy with the outcome of this. I have nothing more to say, sorry again for posting on my own topic such a lot. I don't mean to look like I'm attracting attention, this will be (unless I get a question) my last post here almost definitely.
