What do you think it takes to make a good stop motion video? Here are a few things you need to get started:
- a camera & software (OR) a stop motion app: (mini, experimental videos can be made using Vine & Instagram, but for more control, try iMotion or another noteworthy app)
- a tripod (or anything that will hold your phone/camera steady while you take your photos
- lighting: nothing special, just make sure that your lighting doesn't change, or that shadows are where you want them...
There are more things you can use, but this is a really nice way to begin. Keep it simple. Play.
Oh, and find out what "fps" means. It will help you make a smooth video.
