027. Stop Motion – Crappy Spaceship

This is just a little test to try out some stop-motion techniques. I was watching star trek and wanted to reproduce some of the effects, this little clip is just the first step.
Shot on my Nikon D70 with the “Crappy” spaceship mounted on a little lego rotating platform, the second part is a little composite… not a very convincing composite, but it was quick and kinda funny to make… the best part is the way the shadows and highlights work on the surface!
It is these shadows and highlights which makes it worth it to photograph models, rather than making them 3D, but also the about of time it takes to make! Anyway, more comming soon.
