Inspiration (stop motion) by Carlos Lascano

Inspiration (stopmotion) from Carlos Lascano on Vimeo.


A short film made only from still photos.

It was made by editing in Final Cut pro a series of still photos of the actor I took with a Nikon D70s.
I used a lot of hand made paint textures, drops, ink brushed lines, etc. I also used some old stone wall textures.
I composed every shot in Photoshop splitting footage in layers, drawing and pasting things like a kind of "collage" or patchwork.
Later, I made a 3d composition in After Effects.
Every layer was internally animated independently and later composed in a 3d environment in which I put lights and DoF (depth of field).
The music and sound effects were made with Soundtrack and Apple loops.

Beet Cake

From the website:

song: "babe" - evenings

"There is something beautiful about the baking process. The way flour feels in your hands or the sound of eggs cracking on the edge of a bowl. Baking is a gathering of interesting materials, a mixed medium art piece of sorts, that ends in a cake instead of a canvas.

Thank you for your compliments. We have not been able to respond to comments for some reason (still trying to figure it out....) but here is some general info.

We shot this with a Canon 5D and 7D with EF 50mm f1.4 USM and EF 24-105mm f4L IS. We edited in Final Cut Pro and colored in Color and FCP. We wrote out the titles and edited them in Photoshop.

And yes, the beet cake is delicious!"
