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.}


it’s been a  three day weekend here in the netherlands. here are some things that we did:

dog park- little battleship potemkin went to her first off leash dog park. she did so great! i half expected to her run away and not let us catch her. but she was a little lady. she also decided that she likes climbing trees. she climbed way up above my head and gave me a small heart attack. are dogs supposed to climb trees? but she was able to get back down. and then back up. and then down again..

we later lounged after a long day of running.

rare sunshine moments- it’s been really rainy and gloomy here. ugh! so any chance we get at sunshine; we are outside. sitting around staring at each other.

draw bridge- i just thought this was neat. inception-esque???

stop motion- and the most exciting of all! we started on a new stop motion project. it should be done tonight (fingers crossed). it’s going to be a little different than what we usually do. and the theme is my new favorite drink: the ramos gin fizz. here are a few screen shots and behind the scene shots.
