Re: Stop Motion Wedding

Do you reckon they batch process the photos in photoshop and then add the tilt shift look to a nested sequence as opposed to adding the tilt shift to each photo as part of the batch process? They charge $1500 NZD for the stop motion. I got in touch with them to see if theyd be a reasonable ooption for my couple instead of my services.

Re: Stop Motion Wedding

Brian, they seem more than happy to disclose their methods, just follow the trail from vimeo to their website and discussion forum.

Re: Stop Motion Wedding

Brian, when starting out, you just need to test the waters with pricing and see what other filmmakers / photographers would be charging for film like this.
If there isn't a stop motion type film yet in your area, then your pricing should be based on your experience and portfolio of other works.

Re: Stop Motion Wedding

Just going out on a limb here - I hate it.

Just the whole shoes walking, ties twirling, groom spinning nonsense.

The odd 'wow' shot scenery timelapse is nice, but more than 10secs and it becomes just a tacky gimmick.

That's just me.

Re: Stop Motion Wedding

Hi John

I think it's more of a photog thing rather than a videographer thing. I personally dislike it too..it appears stupid BUT if it makes money and brides like it then I guess we better take our still cameras to a gig.

I saw a pair of photogs shooting video with DSLR's this season inside a Church and while one of then was filming the bride "normally", the other had a Canon 5D mounted on a monopod and she had turned it upside down and was swinging the camera left and right like a pendulum!!!!! I dunno what the idea was there but if they can shoot "video" that way, this psuedo time lapse is mild in comparison.
