This is our first stop motion creation and, WOW, it was so much fun!  It's also our little announcement, hehe! Grin  Here's the video!  http://youtu.be/NYKcoJnGRV0



We used my Canon 5D Mark II, a tripod and a cheapo little wireless remote to trigger the shutter.  Shooting, including setup and tear down (and lots of goofing around), took us about 2 hours total.  We took over 400 shots and I edited them down to 120 or so in the final slides.  I edited them with Photoshop CS5 and just spliced them together in a slideshow with iPhoto.

I made the big chalk board at the end of the video from a thrifted five dollar fugly print & frame and $0.87 cheapo white spray paint.  It's currently just a cardboard insert  (I cheated for sake of time and the video -- shh, don't tell anyone), but I'm going to cut a thin board and affix it permanently to use as a doodle board in our house.

All in all, we're really happy with it!

Congrats!

Ah, the in-between sleep and consciousness hour is what I call "the magic hour." It's where all the best solutions to my projects come from. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. I think that was the most creative part.

Thanks so much!  I was pleasantly surprised with outcome, being that it was our first one since old school claymation in grade school. Cheesy

First off let me take the time to say congrats lady you are going to be an amazing mom again  Grin Now, I would give anything to have my husband be as fun as yours. It brought a tear to my eye to see just how amazing your family is and to see our last little baby watching grow with you is so creative too now. Your family is a treasure, you are the jewel in the middle and your family is so blessed! Your video was so inspiring to me and maybe I cant get my hubby to make one but my granddaughter and I sure could and could put up for her children and so on... THANK YOU FOR INSPIRATION and for allowing us to share in your joy. I am so happy for you, your husband and what a great big brother your lil bitty sweets will have!!

Aww, thank you so much, guys!  My kiddo still asks to watch it every week or so.  He wants to watch "our baby video from the park" Smiley

We have since found out we're having... a BOY! Smiley  Some of our family members went with us to the ultrasound, so we had everyone vote on what they thought it was going to be.  I took these photos before & after the ultrasound, right outside the office.  So this was our little announcement. Smiley

We're so excited and I'm already knee-deep in baby & nursery crafting.  Nursery is painted, new lighting installed and carpet goes in tomorrow.  Then I can fill it with some of these projects that are scattered all through the house. Cheesy
