The 4TANK VAN

This film premiered at 1:00 PM on August 25. I had a lot of fun making this film, and I hope you enjoy it too! I got the idea when I saw an awesome looking van (not unlike the one in the commercial). I then got out a green screen, and started plowing it through things! I then compiled it into a video, and voila, this commercial was born!

Surviving the Coronavirus Pandemic

About this video:

I was really bored in my quarrantine (this was only about a week in), and I wanted to kill some time. I thought, "why don't I make a stop motion video? It kills a lot of time,". So I thought through what kind of a video and how I would make it. Then I started filming. I took all the parts I would need, and I began filming. I have a couple of green sheets of paper that I use for greenscreens in stop motion, and I had my set in front of it. I positioned my camera and began snapping photos. After roughly 400 photos, I had my video (no audio yet). Then, with that, I proceeded to edit the video until it was what I needed it to be. After that, I began scripting the audio. I never actually wrote a script, but I knew what I needed to say. Then, looking at a big screen playing the video while I talked the audio, I narrated the video. Following that, I created the title, credits and inserted the opening and closing music. And with that, I had a completed video! I hope you have as much fun watching it as I did making it!

A day at the airport

This is a stop motion video I made during the time that I had a lego airport built. For playability, it didn't have a roof, hence the lack of one in the video. All I did is film my lego self on a typical journey through an airport. I had to take apart some sections to get the camera where I needed it, but it still turned out to be a great video. Following visual production, I selected audio and added it. I hope you have as much fun watching it as I did making it!

Flying around the globe!

I loved making this video! Unfortunately, during processing, the video quality went way down. But everything else is great! I composed all the music you hear in this film, which was really fun to do. This is the first of my videos to feature the new intro and credits sections. I hope you have as much fun watching this video as I did making it!

Totally Normal

About this video

I was experimenting with greenscreens, and when I finally got how to use them, I made this video! I took the photos and made the stop motion videos in front of a green screen. Then, I put them in front of the photos and videos they would be in front of in the video, added music, and voila! An awesome video!
