Film: Pebbles in a Jar

September 8, 2016

This was the first time I have ever attempted a stop motion with the camera set up on a tripod. It was quite hard and I can see where I went wrong but it was loads of fun to make.

This was the caption I shared with it on Instagram

{Pebbles} For my #stopmotion film for @xantheb’s #makefilmscourse I decided to just use something lying around the house. I had a rough idea of what I was going to do but then I saw the pebbles in the jar and that decided it for me. Music: Luke Brindley A Little Gift
// Pebbles in my jar has been a metaphor of mine for a number of years. I keep the actual jar of pebbles on the side in our home to remind myself that I am that jar, and every time I do something for others the pebbles go down. And I need to make the time to refill the jar by doing things that ‘fill me up’ and make me happy. That way I will always have more to give // It was the perfect reminder as the holidays continue on and my energy and patience levels are running low. Making the film, and taking part in Xanthe’s course are things that make me happy, so this was a win win situation. \\ A little wobbly and not perfect I still think it’s a bloody good try for my first time with the camera set up like this. I also ended up cropping it for IG too. #sgiew #sgiew_sandandsea
