2nd video we shot, titled Jedhead Lives!
Here we upped our game a bit, creating a figure from an artists mannequin, crafting a few props and shooting under natural lighting and outdoors. Yes, stop motion done outdoors, stop laughing, it works here!
Sheala cut and sewed the costume, while Brandon and Lisa cheered her on. Then we proceeded to B & L’s backyard, where much crawling around was done underneath a pecan tree named Agnes.
We had a ball and learned a lot such as in the future to rig movement wires so they don’t show on camera (or spend ridiculous amounts of time in post production), get a dolly or steadicam to smooth out shots and that there are a lot insects in a backyard and they’ll crawl on anything.
