This is what I did for fun today. I bought this sweet action figure on Etsy - its a great design by Bre Pettis, laser cut into a small rectangle of plastic. You pop it all apart and assemble the little guy - MK1 Flatpack Monkey.
It arrived over the weekend and I was excited to put him together, but when I looked at it I saw the awesome opportunity to make a neat stop motion film. So I waited a couple of days until I had the time.
I think my patience paid off. I even found a function in my camera that allowed it to take continuous shots at set intervals (I used a 7 second delay). It was fun.
Stop motion videos make me grin - and they are really easy to make with Windows MovieMaker.
Check it out - I think it turned out great!
