How I did it: I made a stop-motion photography movie. It was for a electronic photography course during my college work. My friends volunteered to help me, and I began to form my ideas. We shot the movie in my yard, then I used a computer program at the university to piece the photos together. Then I presented the project to my class. They enjoyed it, and I posted it to YouTube.

This was a goal that I didn’t dare to write, yet I just made it last week. I don’t really remember how exactly I came up with an idea to make a stop motion animation.
Just wanted to give something special for my niece’s first birthday who lives half-globe away from me.
It took about two days to create it, but the process to explore and plot the ideas took about more than a week. The whole process was really fun, I enjoyed and got very excited though I did everything by myself.
The result was satisfying. I felt accomplished and kinda proud of myself that I can bring my ideas to life.
Now can I say.. I proudly present my stop motion animation:
It boosted my courage and confidence to make another one or two.. we’ll see :) 4 months ago
This goal for me is complex.
I’ve made 1 movie already, it is a 1-hour travel documentary of footage (video + photos) of a trip I took to Africa in 2009.
The story I aspire to make needs to either be written or found. I want to create a
(non-documentary) movie because inserting subtle elements within pictures in motion in intriguing to me. I think I have a good mind + eye to create and capture what I envision into a video format.
I enjoy photography, and this medium greatly expands upon my photographic skills and enjoyment. 12 months ago
