Animation : WEEK 1 – Stop Motion

First assignment for animation class is to make a 30 second stop motion video. The story we used for this video is based on a joke about a tomato family where Papa tomato squeezed one of his children into ketchup because the kid kept lagging behind.

After we all agreed on the story, we decided to include more characters in the video to make it funnier. We stuck googly eyes to carrots, a bell pepper and an onion and placed them around the scene as witnesses. The broccolis were cut in half and turned into trees.

We had problems with lighting and focusing at first but after we got the hang of it everything went smoothly and we could finish everything in 3 hours. For the editing, we got sound samples from https://freesound.org/. We also used our own voice recordings for the conversation between Papa tomato and his kids.

And the result!
