How are stop motion videos created?
Stop motion videos, like any other video production project, need to have a sophisticated plan that is essential to ensure a great final product. Below, stop motion video producers from 87seconds will share what their stop motion video production process is so that you can get an idea of what it takes to create an excellent stop motion video product.
Create a storyboard
First and foremost, a storyboard will be created which will be used to organise and plan out all of the stop motion animation scenes that you want to produce. It is recommended that you add a moderate amount of detail to each sample frame so that you have a basic graphical visualisation before you shoot the frames.
Create the stop motion set
In the second phase, the set will be created where all of the shooting is going to happen. This is an important part of the project as it will set the tone regardless of whether you are shooting an animation or real-life characters.
Prepare the characters and props for the stop motion animation
If a story is being told in the stop motion video, the featuring characters will be prepared in accordance with the storyboard before the shooting begins.
Prepare the lighting and shooting equipment
Depending on the nature and the requirements of your stop motion video, the most suitable lighting and shooting equipment will be selected for the job. They will have a great impact on the overall look and quality of the final product.
Once everything is ready to go, the shooting phase will begin.
Compose the project together with a software
Post-shooting, our editors will put together all of the selected content to create a world-class stop motion video.
