Hi DPC!
After not participating in any photographic activities in the last 2 years+ (except for the occasional snapshot here and there), I think it is time I try again. Maybe 3000 pictures would do? IDK, just trying something new. See here:

I used the webcam (I might use my camera next time, although I'm not sure of the advantages), tripod, and the green screen. Later I just created a gradient in PS for the background. I used adobe premiere to create the sequence, titles, and effect at the end.
Maybe I'll enter a challenge soon!

Wow!

That was great. I have been wanting to do some stop motion but I haven't been inspired by an idea yet. That was really cool though great work.

Really great.

Very cool!

Great work. I'm really jealous. I don't think I could pull something like this off, no matter how hard I tried.

Thank you all for nice comments. The best part of this was the time spent with kids. (They built and moved the pieces, came up with the scenario, while I provided director services, tech support and post-processing).
Can't wait to do it again soon!

Wow, that's FANTASTIC !

Thanks, Slippy.
I think I missed the insanity of this place and cameras and everything else. I feel like I'm getting sucked into it again. Feels good, should I be worried?!

No, no need to worry... Just take this blue pill, and everything will be fine... Oh, and here's some Kool-Aid to wash it down. ;-)

Pretty cool! And the fact that it was a family project makes it even better!

Welcome back!

That's great! Makes me miss all my legos

Nice!

what amazes me is that there is an entire genre of youtube videos devoted to stop motion animation of building the Lego millenium falcon.

Yes, I wasn't aware of the scope of it... my 11-yr old found one of those on youtube, and wanted to do it with our new set. It was fun doing it. He may do it again with some other lego, when we get one. I'll try to keep the creativity flowing, and not create another me-too thing. As long as there is something his in it, I'm going to be extremely happy. Seeing kids sit semi-still for hours creating the best scene they can imagine is rewarding in itself.
Now I found web sites and forums (almost like this one) dedicated to animation. Some crazy stuff exists out there.

Thanks!
