Stop Motion Deadlines

Script and Storyboards - March 19th
Background and prop assembly - April 6th (one week - remember we get a week off for spring break)
Character creation - April 13th
First 5 seconds (120 shots/photos) - April 27th
30 seconds (720 shots/photos) - May 11th
Editing of images/animation - May 18th
Addition of sound effects and/or music - May 23rd
Addition of end credits - May 24th
Completely edited animation - May 25th

This project will be a great way to work cooperatively with your peers (and have fun while at it). However, for us to accomplish our goal, we must make sure we are 100% on task and that everyone is doing their part. The deadlines above are when a certain element is due, to keep everyone on track. However, if you want to assign two people to create your characters, two people to create the background and two people to create props, this may be a great way to use your time and resources.

Remember when you start shooting to mark where the tripod will be located, as well as mark where your shots are taken so you can have the exact frame as the previous day. If you need help with anything, just ask!

Have a great weekend!
