Paper cut-out stop motion animation 1

This is my very first paper cut-out stop motion animation. I had no idea what I was doing. Now that I had done it once I can see the many mistakes I made.

In preparation for this I started cutting out some of the basic shapes I was planning to use. In the end this wasn’t sufficient and I ended cutting out further things as I was taking photographs. Clearly I planned this poorly.

Paper cut-outs for the video

Here is the setup I had for taking pictures. I arranged things so that I was looking at things upside down which made it difficult for me. Another mistake I will avoid next time.

The video features the narration of Mary Knapp Parlange. She is a fantastic writer. You can visit her website here.

This was lots of work but felt satisfying. Plus I made mental notes on what to do differently next time.
