This is a stop motion animation with Stikbot action figures and a Re-Ment Pose Skeleton. Created with Pro 2017. Chroma key was used in every shot along with masking and various other effects. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r747JYI9ZAc
FUNNY!!! Great Job!!
@SeanDoubleJ Good stop motion animation. It ain't easy to do. I admire the patience you have. You put a lot of time into it. How did you hold the dog off the ground while running? A masked out armature of some kind?
@tddavis Thanks for the kind words. The dog was filmed on a blue screen. I used a stack of clear LEGO bricks attached with blue Fun-Tak to move him up and down. Most of that was able to be chroma keyed away. Any areas that weren't keyed were then masked out.
Love it! Really fun little short, and excellent stop-motion animation. If I were to nitpick, I'd say that some of the shots could've maybe been a little shorter (like just a few frames each), just to tighten up the edit a touch and enhance the comedic impact. But even in its current form, it's a great giggle.
@SeanDoubleJ Very creative solution for stop motion.
This was supposed to post from my phone 2 days ago. Don't know what happened but I found today.
Nicely done, @SeanDoubleJ ! I don't know if I'd have the patience to do something like this but I admire you guys that do! Hope to see more!
I thought the dog was going to take a leg bone and leave the skeleton hanging.......or hopping. ;^)
Great little short, the skeleton stop frame was very nicely done, really captured the movements of the character. Also loved the use of the dirt effect as it tunnelled.
Wow great job. Super clean and well thought out. I thought the dog was going to take out the skeleton lol.
Excellent animation, and pretty funny! I'll agree with jsbarrett that a few shots could use some teeny trims, but that's nitpicky.
Stop-motion is a difficult discipline, and you really did an excellent job getting smooth and interesting movement. Great work!
@SeanDoubleJ - I've watched this over and over and still can't get enough. It's funny, original, and thoroughly put me in the mood for Halloween, keep up the great work!
@Triem23 Thanks for the feedback!
@EvangelineWilliams Thanks! I'm glad that I helped spread some Halloween cheer.
@SeanDoubleJ it would be really cool to see a behind the scenes look if you have the time because it is so well done.
