The Gray Coat & Stop Motion Photography

Thursday, October 1, 2009

I had such a wonderful time yesterday walking around in my long coat. Sometimes all it takes is a pretty outfit to boost confidence. While working at my Anthropology Club book sale fundraiser, I accidentally made a boo boo on my tights. At least now I have a liable excuse to purchase new ones.

Outfit details:
Coat- Piko 1988 via a boutique in Mexico
V-Neck- Local Clothing Boutique
Skirt- Bloom
Tights- Wal Mart
Shoes- Target

After reading an article on stop motion photography on Photojojo and browsing through some videos on YouTube, I came to the conclusion that sometime in the near future I would love to make my own short film using stop motion. I'm still unsure of the story line I want to aim for so I have some brainstorming to do. Out of the batch of videos I've seen, the ones featured below are the ones I find to be the most inspiring. I baffle every time I think about the ridiculously large amount of pictures required to fill in just one minute of a stop motion video. See for yourself...

That's a lovely gray coat and you look so pretty in your swirly skirt holding the autumn leaf! I wish I had a skirt just like that:)

I've seen the Oren Lavie video before and was so amazed by it! I mean, with the amount of time and work that goes into making that video, I can't help but feel in awe.

Happy weekend dear!

lovely outfit..great coat & skirt :)

those stop motion films are amazing...but you're right, the sheer amount pictures & the time it would take to put such a film togther would be immense! it'd be fun doing your own though, i think you should give it a go!

thanks for visiting my blog, i really love what i've seen of yours so i'll be adding you to my blog roll :)

I've been DYING to make one of these too! I was inspired by the Oren Lavie video and a wedding invitation I saw on someone's blog that was done in stop motion on Vampire Weekend's M79. I could watch those over and over again. I've seen the Pen story before too. Amazing.

I'm just trying to come up with a great idea and the time!
