interactive product- videoI completed doing my evaluation for my stop motion video.
To make the stop motion, I use a cardboard box to create the set. I created the set by using pictures of the internet and sticking them to the cardboard box. The pictures that I used Was a town and a forest I used Photoshop to make them my own. I also use the spare parts of the cardboard to make the characters and the houses to make it look like a city. Once I have created the set . i borrowed a camera and tripod off college to take 180 photos. When i had to do the forest scene, i paperclip the forest background over the original background. When i was finished taking all the photos, i uploaded all my photos onto the computer and input them into Adobe premier programmed on the computer to put the animation together . once the animation was put together with the music. i save it in my documents than i insert the link into the video. The music that i used in my video was the classic relax walking music so people can think about the story first before going into the slideshow to read the rest of the animation. The things that worked well with the animation was the music because it is relaxing at the beginning of the story and then when the boys have died in the middle of the story, the audio is were you can hear the girls crying because there brother had died. The hardest thing about stop motion was trying to get the sounds to work with the photos and the scenery behind it. Also it was hard to make the stop motion thirty seconds. I did 180 photos for my stop motion but i only used 27 of the photos because my animation went over 30 seconds and the animation ended begin 1 minute long. the most enjoyable bit of this unit was doing the story and making a animation out of it. i also enjoy doing my own sounds using the Foley technique. In my power point i used different transitions to make it look scary.

Foley is relating to or concerned with the recorded sound effects after the shooting of a film. They use different props to create all the sound effects. The props they used are from plates to chairs and anything they can find. The artists watch the film and creates the sounds in real life then adds them to each of the scenes in the movie. The most common sounds that Foley recreates are doors opening or closing, people walking up and down the stairs, pets starching and making the weather noises. Most Foley artists have their own props. Most successful Foley artists can look at an object and imagine what the sound of that object will be. The Foley crew will include the artist or the walker. Foley artists are named after Jack Foley.
