NOTE: TO VIEW, PLEASE DOWNLOAD. The video won't play, but you can still download it :] Sorry!
My more-than-slightly rough stop-motion response to Metaphorest & PASIV's AMAZING song 'Clocks Back.'
I originally had 4 shots per letter, but - wow - when I put them all together it couldn't fit into the music properly, and was too busy. So, after taking out 3/4 of the shots I took, this is what I got!
& sorry about the shakiness. I don't have a tripod, so I had to hold the camera.
Hopefully *fingers crossed* it's decent!
Just a little clay, cardboard, & whiteboard marker stop-motion to go with the loverly music collaboration by Metaphorest & LizzieMackie! Starring Mr. Charlie Offen (Get it? C. Offen? Like Coffin? :P) And Mrs. Clara Offen. It's a bit rough, & the video converter took out quite a few frames, but I think it turned out very homey :] Hopefully!
I decided to use Ms. Lizzie's blues version, because I could pair up transitions/frames with the strumming and beats better.
Trivial Facts: You can actually see the change in lighting throughout the video because the sun changing positions today [which I think is pretty cool, for some reason.] Also, you can't really see it, but Mr. Offen has a rather dashing mustache that resembles a certain chips logo, as well as a bow tie! He is also named after his look-alike Charlie Chaplin. Clara's partially named because it's Clara Bow's birthday today, [for which her name & large bow really coincidentally represent! I did NOT realize that!] and because her name seemed to fit :]
the rooftops are the playground of BANGKOK
RE: Cities - Bangkok!
This was orginally going to be filmed on the BTS, but due to various dangers and the amount of people involved, we had to relocate!
The whole thing goes in and out of focus, with a bit of shakiness, as out awesome cameraman was a newbie at using our camera, courtesy of my friend Aly. But I think it adds to the whole child-like effect, don't you?
I decided to add eaneikciv's Once Upon A Balloon song because I felt it was an appropriately light-hearted tune, & is an absolutely adorable song <3
The introduction is a bit iffy, & is actually a video of the buildings just off the edge of BKK city, so it's technically Bang Na buildings :P
Starring myself, my artsy friend Tanya, a little bit of her sister Meghna, & our begruding art teacher who had to be there because we weren't allowed onto our school's roof without a supervisor :]
I made a sort of haunting ocean lullaby from KarlaMarie's lyrics. Please feel free to REmix & such <3
Low in the wave,
beneath our sleep
nothing is paved,
notion seldom weeps.
I am she
floating in hush
lost at sea
my tides of crush.
Well, it’s October the 7th, which means that it’s my HitRECordiversary today :] One whole year! & let me tell you: it’s been an amazing...
Every time I smile
It comes out as a frown.
I'm afraid my muscles
Don't know up from down.
It's finished! IT'S FINISHED!
Here is (over a year late) my stop-motion response to Phen, Johnny, & Pammy's beautiful collaboration! Well, three minutes of it.
I'm really heartbroken that I've only got a small fraction of the actual stop-motion that I did (I did a really idiotic thing & accidentally deleted everything) so this is the stop-motion that got away. But, sadly I don't think I have it in me to redo/finish it anymore. BUT, feel absolutely free to REmix/REuse/spruce up/continue anything with this!
Ummmm... It's a bit rough & shaky & all, because i basically just spread fabric out, cut up images, and then hunched over it with a camera :P
