Stop motion with paper cutouts

A nightingale in a golden cage
That's me, locked inside reality's maze
Come someone, make my heavy heart light
Come undone, bring me back to life...


I made this animation for Digital Art class last semester. It's 320 frames at 15 frames per second. Photographs were taken with my cheap digital camera in the dining room (i.e., bad lighting), and the animation was made in MonkeyJam, which is a free stop motion program. I didn't figure out how to upload movies to deviantART until now. :blush:

Here's the link to this animation on YouTube: [link]

Also, your speakers aren't broken--there's no sound to this video. :D

Obviously inspired by the Nightwish song Escapist ;)

Comments and constructive critiques are welcome! :)

This is cute :) I've tried stop motion a few years ago (I wanted to animate The Little Prince with modeling clay), took a couple hundred shots but never really made the animation out of it... It's so time consuming (but so nice when it's done) :)

Thank you! :D Yes, it is time-consuming but fun. :) I never tried animating with clay because I'm not much of a sculptor, so I figured that the simplest thing I could possibly do for animation is silhouette cutouts! :lmao:
