I also went in to help with the stop-motion film, around the same time Bridget did. When I got to the studio, Sihanouk gave me a tour of their part of the space, including their work area/tables and the room where they do all of the shooting. It was interesting to see how they set up lighting, and how they angle/place objects so that they don’t look flat on camera. Although Bridget and I unfortunately didn’t go in at the same time, we did manage to tag team some of the props.
The first time I went in I worked on building/crafting burgers, fries and soda cups as props for one of the scenes (props that Bridget later did a beautiful job painting – see previous posts). Creating these props was probably my favorite part of helping out at the studio (I have taken sculpture classes in the past, and working on these miniatures gave me a chance to relive those days). There was another person in to help that day, Paul, who worked on the larger props.
The second time I went in I helped break down the old set and began setting up the new one. Did you know rubbing alcohol breaks down hot glue? I didn’t. But it came in handy when trying to pry loose lights and stands and had been stuck fast to the floor/tabletop so that they wouldn’t move between shots. After everything was broken down, I got to play around with creating a sky color, and also got to create clouds to hang in the background.
The experience was great overall, and I got to see just how much time it takes to create a stop-motion film. Of course you think about how much time is taken by the actual shooting of a scene in stop-motion animation, but the time that goes into building props and ‘stages’ for the characters to move around in is just as demanding. Every aspect of stop-motion is time consuming – and during the times I popped in to the studio, we didn’t even get enough done to be ready to shoot the next scene. However, all that time and effort is producing some great results, and the clips I got to see of finished scenes are coming together nicely.
