Michaels Used To Make Stop Animation Films, Here Are 3 To Watch
When I was a kid, I used to spend my spring and summer breaks making these Super 8 film stop-motion films.
I made these back in 1983 with my camera, toys, and whatever else I could find around the house. It's funny to look back at them and see the little things like my X-Wing toy being held up by a coat hanger attached to a folding chair on a skateboard.
Some of them are better than others, but I think my best is Home Cleaning, which you can see below.
You shoot these films two frames at a time, and I had no way to edit them, so this is just raw shooting that I would hope turned out okay in the end.
My second film was Escape to Andromeda, which features some aliens showing up and one even getting taken out by a train.
My favorite film I made was Home Cleaning, which shows all the stuff around my house putting itself away. The shoes move down the hallway on their own, the bed makes itself, the pool balls put themselves in their respective pockets.
