11 Jan 2019 :: LOOKING BACK :: STOP MOTION
I love creating stop motions.
2019 saw a variety of projects, created to promote all sorts of products. I love that I can work with a big established brand one day and then be shooting for a small upcoming company, where these assets can enhance both of their marketing campaigns.
I shot most of these by myself, in my home studio, often coming up with the ideas/briefs. Then sourcing props, and styling/art directing on my own. I find the shooting of stop motions, a mediative process, it’s quiet and slow paced. I put on a podcast or play music in the background and find my flow. It’s a balance to the other areas of my work, where I’m interacting with people and shooting on the fly.
This year, my stop motions became more simple. I’ve found a move towards ‘GIF style’ stop motions of just a few seconds of movement, rather than longer more complicated actions. This is good for me and the brand, as I can shoot multiple assets, to give them more options when sharing many social channels.
These are a few of my favourite projects from 2019… was tricky to narrow it down to just these!
Everything is pretty colourful, that’s my style and I like it.
