Well, I’ve had to put away my “studio” temporarily to make room for some work-related stuff, so I’ve been entertaining myself in other ways. The results of this new pastime can be seen on the new Non-LEGO Videos page.
A lot of the stop motion films I make rely pretty heavily on editing, whether IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m cutting together lots of little clips to make a full scene, time-stretching a shot to match gestures to dialogue, or just plain fixing bad animation. I use Sony Vegas 4.0 for most of this editing, occasionally making title sequences in Flash.
All the stuff I know about editing I learned by playing around with the software. When I find myself with a bit of spare time (but not enough to do a full-blown animation) I still like to play around editing existing video footage just to see what kind of things I can do. The videos below are re-edits of popular family entertainment shows put to the fine musical stylings of Ween.
Note: If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re of an age where your parents have a say in the kind of stuff you watch or listen to, you might be better off checking with them before watching these clips. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no real cussing or anything in the songs, but they pretty much fall into the category Ã¢â‚¬Å“unsavouryÃ¢â‚¬Â. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t blame me if you get grounded or something.
