In 2020, you can make an animated movie using only your smartphone, for free.
Do you need any special tools to make an animated movie?
If you have a camera-equipped smartphone or tablet, you can animate.
Where should I animate?
Animate wherever you are.
What should I animate?
Animate something that normally doesn’t move on its own.
Why should I animate?
Good question! 😀
Please let me know your answer.
Record a time-lapse of yourself emptying and organizing your junk drawer.
You may be surprised at the hidden gems you find inside.
This particular video was filmed with an iPhone 6S Plus, using the Skyflow time-lapse app.
This is a video experiment involving a vinyl record album.
The Question: what does it look like when an overhead camera rotates at the same rate as a vinyl record, playing at 33 1/3 revolutions per minute?
The Answer: it looks delightfully disorienting.
The smartphone camera recorded an overhead video clip of the record player from a fixed, non-moving perspective.
Later, in video-editing software, I set the video clip to rotate at the same rate, and in the same direction, as the record spun.
The Docking Scene from Interstellar features a similar visual, where a camera mounted in a fixed position is rotated to match a rotating subject.
I watched ice skating for the first time last night.
I loaded up a 2006 Johnny Weir performance in Torino, at YouTube’s suggestion.
I crossed my eyes while watching it and -BOOM- there were TWO Johnny Weirs!
At the suggestion of a friend, I decided to use a video-editor trick to duplicate the effect.
Two Johnny Weirs for your enjoyment, AND you can keep your eyes un-crossed. 😀
