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!

Loved the apple part. Picking apples from a painted tree, how clever!
Congrats!

Thanks!  That was a random 2 am thought before I fell asleep one night. Cheesy  Kiddo loves apples and trees, so just a silly way to incorporate it.
