Stop Motion

I was watching Twit Photo and they had Petra Cross as a guest speaker to talk about her Stop Motion movies. I was hooked within 30 seconds. I have seen stop motion movies before but never really knew what I was looking at and how it was created. I discovered that these movies are created using thousands of still images. It is like a digital flip-book that has music added to it. What fun! I knew I had to give it a try. I walked outside of my apartment on Roosevelt Island and just started clicking away. 1,500 pictures later, I came up with my first stop movie masterpiece. OK, maybe “masterpiece” is stretching it but I am still very proud of it.
