One of my favorite places. These rocks are so beautiful. The sense of solitude you get when in them, you realize how small and insignificant you actually are. You see beyond your own life and realize just how beautiful this planet truly is and how much goes unseen in our day to day lives. If you weren't looking, this place would go unnoticed, simply a small gap in a dried out creek bed. But when you go beneath, there is a whole other world. There is more to everything and in these places you begin to appreciate that.
I had certainly done it now. I dragged poor William outside with me to play. We were playing adventure when the downpour came. It wasn't a good idea to begin with. Mum told me not to take him ...
I was looking around the site and found this. Don’t know if anyone will read it seeing as the collaboration was made two years ago but here you go.
Who are you & wh...
My amatuer attempt (1st attempt... EVER.) at making a stop motion. I had about an hour this morning so I thought I'd try a test run to gauge how much time I would need to make the final product.Turns out a lot. Everyone who makes stop motion, YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!!! I have a lot of resepct for you. :) Hopefully, one day I can get there.
I think from 8-seconds to about 17-seconds, it runs a little bit more smoothly but I'll need to work on it.
But I learned a lot from this attempt. So its time to take those lessons and build from it :D
Lesson 1: Use a stable light source. (Maybe like the one I used to take Donnie's picture last night)
Lesson 2: Maybe finer adjustements between shots.
Lesson 3: Don't bump the camera!!!!
Lesson 4: Get a tripod for my camera [I don't own one so I used my iPad's camera instead cause it has a stand]
I hope you guys enjoy & maybe it can be used for something or maybe not. :) But I promise the next one will be better. Now I have an idea of what needs to be done :)
Thanks for sharing this experience with me!

P.S.: Again, if you have any advice, please let me know! :)
So I'm going to be brave and attempt a stop motion. I thought this could be good practice. So... to all of you talented people who can do stop motion, do you have any advice??? I've never done this before. I would be most grateful for any advice you might have.
I've already made donnie; and his arms, legs & head can move. I probably won't start on 'filming" until a couple of days from now.
Any help would be appreciated. In the mean time, here is donnie, enjoying a cup of coffe in his oak tree :)
P.S.: I can't find alexandretta's lovely illustration of donnie titled "release title by alenxandretta": so here is the link: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/524812
I'm a week late but this is for Project 52: week 1
Fresh rain, mud, fog, etc. Lots of fun to go through :)
"Tonight, send me skywards."
I saw joe's tiny story while waiting for class today and this came to mind. Dandelions seem kinda overdone but it fit. They're left to the whim of the wind, without control of their own direction; hoping their wish becomes command.
I'm not a great illustrator but I drew this very quickly. Nor am I great at editing and coloring things on computer so if someone would be so kind as to color it I would be very much obliged. I think it could be very pretty if colored :) Alas, it is merely an idea for a tiny story I thought needed an illustration ;)
*Note: I thought of something very neat to do with this. So please stay tuned.... :)
Surrounded by leaves. Rustling long leaves of a cornstalk, swaying in the summer breeze.
I am hiding. Hiding from my cous...
I found poor donnie in my desk and thought he needed some fresh air... or rather a nap. So I decided to give him a couch and tv. Perhaps a stop motion is in the making since he's already made. Any other furniture suggestions?
My roommate and I had a party for her younger sister and we didn't know what to do with all the balloons. So we tied them altogether and played with them outside. :)
