The Bug Brick

video
After a while, I was finally able to make time to finish my project. I call it the Bug Brick. It's, well, a brick, that sprouts legs and antenna, and sort of crawls off. It is, however, only about six seconds long, and not exactly amazing... But I think for a first try, It's not too bad.
Tell me what you think about it!

Back to blogging

Ok, I just finished writing my class X exams, so I can now get back to maintaining this blog. All projects were put on hold, and I had very little time to do anything other than study. So, now I have a holiday of sorts, and can finish whatever I had been working on before. Namely that short Video I was working on. Untill then, this is my mom, relaxing with a cup of tea one evening. She likes to just sit out, watch the sunset, and let time take its own course. All while dinner simmers on the stove.

A test


I was inspired by These Guys to try out something different. So, a few nights ago I took out the camera, set it up on the tripod. (Did I ever mention how lucky I am to be able to use professional equipment? It helps that your dad is in the business, I guess) Set the shutter speed to - I forgot... but it was more than ten seconds. And made a short stop-motion scene. What you see here is just one frame, out of about fifty. It's the first time I've tried something like this, so don't expect much.
I'll post the finished video in a few days, after I figure out how to turn a bunch of photos into a moving picture. Apart from scrolling down to page to see each frame at a time...
