My second stopmotion film, “The Sword of Damocles”, is now complete. The date on my three page draft outline for Damocles reads November 25, 2006. I posted my intention of doing the Damocles project for StopMoShorts on November 28th (see previous post). It is now midnight December 19th and I have finished encoding the QuickTime file for submission to the StopMoShorts site. [Although, I am having a bit of a problem uploading it to StopMoShorts tonight which kind of concerns me.]
It was quite an exercise and I learned a lot of little things that should help me with other projects including Vitruvius. I also, think I got a little carried away as the film ended up being just over 6 minutes long. I plan to post more info about the production of the film after the holidays and new year’s activities. I also plan to revisit the footage to render a DVD resolution and HD resolution version for future use.
