"Afternoon at Scotshall Lane"
26 November 2009

A short film remembering a sunny Figaro afternoon in the country.

This rapid-stop-motion animated performance was shot on a Canon IXUS 75 using its continuous-shot mode, mounted on a Konig heavy duty tripod. I can capture footage at about 1 frame per second with these ISO and exposure settings.

This low frame rate of capture encourages me to think like an animator when filming; practicing spacing & timing, planning eases or easing on the fly, trying to "act" out key poses and over-acting some movements to have the motion read better.

For the most part the image sequences are played back at 8 frames per second.
