Here's a stop motion video i made for the Death Cab for Cutie song - Your Heart is an Empty Room. The whole thing took me about 3 months and contains over 5000 different pictures. I made it only using monkeyjam for the video and audacity for the audio. Major thanks to Fro who helped me get it into flash so i could show you guys. Sorry about the low quality. That size restriction thing is a huge annoyance. You can watch it on you tube in hd if its a problem -

Really good

I'd suggest going though and synching stuff to the music a bit better, though. Deleting or adding frames to make it all work perfectly.

the little bit that its unsynched it because of the process of formating it into flash. If you watch it on youtube it lines up perfectly. Believe me, i spent countless hours painstakingly match up frames

Love the Creativity of this

Well nice G17 now more stop-motion is ok with me, i kinda like stop-motion myself but anyways, Now for me its always nice to see a "MENU" screen you did have the preloader one, i thought you could have worked off that and have some sorta art work that reflects the movie we are about to see, Now as i watch your little film, it was very impressive, but mostly i found it to be very "CREATIVE" with the whole stop-motion and the style of a paper and drawing and writing stuff, and i have to say for 4+ megs it was pretty smooth or as smooth as you can get with this sorta style, Now i like the drawing on paper idea but why not have it so that the view screen is only on the paper and not the table, just an idea there no biggie on that, As for the "MUSIC" it was a good choice of song, but the quality of it was abit low, kinda scratchy, and needed to really turn up the volume to hear it, but still a good choice i thought, and at the end of your film it starts the loop over, thats notbad, but i think buttons like a replay button would work a lil better, but anyways good creativity, and i enoyed it, hope to see more of your work soon.

Creat a menu screen even with the preloader button, The quality of the music recording could be better, a replay button at the end would be nice, instead of the looping.

A good and creative idea with drawing, I enjoyed it.
