Making a movie with two dozen Canon D-SLR's

Check it out:

So that they could shoot multiple sets simulataneously, Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride" used 24 of the Canon EOS-1D Mk. II Digital SLR still cameras. Now that's what I call production! This is an excellent article.

That's funny, I was just planning on a stopmotion film with a friend, and I suggested using one of the Canon DSLRs (awesome picture quality). That's awesome!

Amazing considering those things are only 8 megapixel. You'd think they'd use a 22-megapixel medium format camera, especially if you listen to film snobs.

Coincidentally I happened to catch a glimpse of Nightmare Before Christmas the other night and thought, "That MUST be CGI, because the way clothes and hair move would be impossible to do with stop animation." Now that I've read the article and learned it was indeed stop animation, it shows how great the animators are.

Bill,

The "Nightmare Before Christmas" DVD has some good special features about the animation... they do a great job.

I am excited about Corpse Bride.

Thanks for posting the link to that movie John Jay. Does anyone have any idea how they shot it with a still camera? I was blown away.

Yup, thanks John for posting that link. Really interesting movie to watch. I liked the way he masked one scene to another. In one shot you see the background trees move at a different speed that the foreground ones. Gave kind of a cool dimension to the effect.
