What I Made:
I made a lego stop-motion music video. The video includes Adele"s "Rollin In The Deep" song accompanied by animated Legos. For example, lego Adel's mouth moves to the music. The lego's are choreographed to the music.
How I Made It:
I created the video using a method called "stop-motion animation". It is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. To do this I took a picture of a lego minifigure, moved it a little, and took another picture. Eventually when I had enough pictures, I played them altogether, and it appeared that the lego minifigure was moving on its own! For the animation of the mouth, I used a photo editing software to erase the original mouth and place a different one on instead. I placed a different mouth on for each picture, trying to get the mouth to line up with the words of the song. After all the photos were played for the right amount of time, and everything seemed to match up, I uploaded the video to YouTube.
Where I Made It:
I worked on the video at home.
What I Learned:
I learned how easy it was to animate things such as Legos. Also, this project was a good way for me to learn how to animate mouths of Lego minifigures. Although it took a while, a did learn a lot about the stop-motion animation process.
