ramos gin fizz stop motion gif.

this is very exciting. i had an vision for our next stop motion saturday project which was basically a stationary menu or recipe. and this is what we came up with!!!!

a few weeks ago i told fred we were going to learn how to make a ramos gin fizz. it takes about 7 minutes to make and 6 of those are just the shaking. fred was skeptical because of the egg white. but it turned out to be super delicious and my new favorite drink. and thus the star of our next stop motion movie was born.

this was a fairly quick project. it only took a few days where some of our stop motions take weeks! we shot the objects and there movements on saturday using excellent movie magic like shaving cream  and hot glue. i sculpted a beautiful gin fizz out of said shaving cream. then it was as simple as making a temeplate in illustrator, dropping in the animations, and making it a gif! and i say simple because fred did all the scary technical video program stuff while i made pretty templates and fussed around with type.

but i am pleased with the final product and can’t wait for our next stop motion project.

{if you want some better information about anything, go to fred’s blog (http://fredhuergo.wordpress.com/). i’m sure he will explain things better, as he is the nerd scientist and i’m just the pretty prop master.}

stop motion.

in the last post i spoke of stop motion projects. i realize i haven’t posted any on this blog yet! fred and i like to work on little side stop motion films in our time off. here are two, the first one is our most recent one and the only one we’ve completed ( so far ) in amsterdam. and the second one was a tiny homage to my dear departed psycho killer cat.

 

i’ll post my favorite stop motion next week ( it is a fast paced jazz rendition on how to make my favorite drink ) and soon we will be finished with our second amsterdam based video.
