Since I’ve been sharing the little stop motions over Instagram, there have been a few questions about my process, so I thought… why not show you a little peek at behind the scenes of my latest creation.

First, let’s take a look at the stop-motion shared on Instagram.

Just a little bit of springtime fun…

Now you can take a behind-the-scenes peek at how I shot it -

Equipment used – Canon Camera Remote Control Cable TC-80N3 & Canon EOS 5DMIII with 35mm 1.4 lens

Other details – Fabric from Fictive Fingers :: My clothes from BodenCardigan & Breton :: Temporary tattoo from Rosie Wonders


Once the photos are edited and re-sized to 16:9 ratio, I will bring them into iMovie to create the 15 second stop motion film and get it ready to upload to Instagram.

There are other editing programs you could use but this is quick and simple for me.

Let me show you…

Easy, right?

Hope this has inspired you to create your own stop motion films… HAVE FUN!

If you do create one I’d LOVE to see it, tag me on Instagram (@xantheb) or share in the comments here or my Instagram feed.

Have a great weekend… x.

    Thanks a lot Xanthe! I’m using the stop motion techniques for my admission film for art school and you just helped me out a lot. You did a great job on keeping the explanation super clear and nice and easy to listen to. Let’s see if you got other tutorials to help me out, haha. Thanks again! X
