Tiny Film, Sort Of

This summer I'll be taking a week-long course with SpyHop. I'll be learning some digital film making projects that I can do with my (elementary school) students next year. They sent a representative down my way last week to work with one of my classes making really tiny stop motion films. She had to leave before we were finished so tomorrow I get to finish the project with the students on my own. I spent some time tonight tinkering around with iMovie to make sure I know what I'm doing. It's is really basic, and not very finessed, but here's my first try. I just happened to take a bajillion pictures of my kids playing on their new tire swing the other day. Ta-da! Tell me what you think.

Ok... Honest opinion. The first part, when the frame jumps all over the place, is like watching a movie where the cameraman can't keep still... motion sickness. But once it settles into a fixed position, I love it!! You will have to show me what all you do to make "movies" this summer. Keep practicing and good luck!!

Very clever! Thanks for sharing - I am sure you are becoming an iMovie pro and have a feeling you'll be posting a few more movies over the next year. :)

I love it! I love how it is all jumpy with the swinging. It made me feel the wonderful sick feeling you only get on a tire swing. It was short enough so I didn't stay sick. :o)

Actually, Montbrillant is the original base for Breitling Watch making. Continuing the excellent tradition of Navitimer series, Navitimer Watches is also characterized by the integral slide rule. Innovatively, a date window has been found between 4 o'clock and 5 o'clock. Montbrillant Datora feature can not be frequently seen on other watches of the same series. The obvious feature of Breitling Avenger refers to the four-chronograph dial. Each one has the unique function for exact time display.
