Stopmotion Animation Trial and Error

Try and try again!


After the recent research I have been doing on Stop motion animation I have been having a go myself, not every thought I have had has been successfull.

THe first idea I had been intending  to create a surrealistic fun animation based on my feelings around the memories of my wedding. Using play do and pieces of materials and different items from my wedding I was going to simulate a swirling effect of items in a sequence matching my thoughts on the events of the day. I was going to add sounds to the piece including my voice talking, voicing my thoughts and music, the sound of the music box I had a t my wedding and a background bustle of people, with moments of silence.

I started by making the play do into lips which I was going to simulate open and closing mouth movements with and eyes which were going to move a s the swirling items went round the play do face. I then gathered bits and bobs and started with the pictures. I had not planned very well and get easily frustrated with the models I had made as they kept breaking up and causing issues like staining the backing material I was using to lay the items on. I also just was not enjoying  it and am concerned that I need to enjoy the project I am doing.

Lets try again!


So I decided to abandon my previous ideas and project and try a simple stop motion to get myself going. My husband and I have been together for 5 1/2 year and married for 1 and 1/2, each year on valentine’s day he buys me a tear drop rose, one of the really tacky ones but its a tradition and I love it. He also buys me the wooden roses where ever her sees them as he know I don’t think to much of jewelry but the wooden roses I love.

I decided to tray and play around with this and simulate my growing family by using these roses. I decided to have a rose for myself, my husband and my daughter and make them grow. I did this and even thought it is very simple and small I am pleased with the result.
