Success

MCSMS ChartI’d just like to thank everyone who watched Episode 16 and managed to get the views up to 130 in just four days. To put this in perspective, Episode 1 hasn’t managed to get over 100 in just over four months. I can only assume that it’s because Episode 16 was placed onto the Boinx example page, grabbing views from everyone who goes to the page to buy iStopMotion. Here’s a little graph to prove my point; it shows Episodes 1, 16 and the Christmas Episode as a running total so you can see the amazing rate of growth of it.

Flight MCSM003 Has Been Delayed…

24 10 2008

No, I don’t mean an actual aeroplane, silly! I mean that episode 3 of Mr Cheese’s Stop Motion Show will not be ready tomorrow. Once again, I forgot to bring it with me. I could have emailed it, put it on a memory stick, even put it on my iPod, but no – I had to forget. Again. Oh well. It’ll be ready Sunday night, early Monday morning I suppose. On the plus side, today was an inset day, so that was fun! Bye bye for now!





Stop Motion: Does That Even Make Sense?

11 10 2008

It’s a good question. How can “stop motion” make sense? You can’t stop and move at the same time… Oh well.

Today, it’s all about stop motion. I made a little example video using pencils:

It hasn’t quite finished being “processed” yet, so don’t blame me if the video doesn’t work at the moment. Just try watching it again another time!

Or, if you can’t be bothered to come back here, if you wait until about Wednesday, or maybe Thursday, you can go to Mr Cheese’s Stop Motion Show to see it there. Why not subscribe? Then you’ll never miss an episode! There should be a new one every week, but I doubt it. You’ll have to wait and see.

Staying Creative

6 09 2008

I carried on the Photoshop antics today as well, creating a cucumber with legs running across a road – not very realistic, I know, but fun to make! I’ll post it up on Flickr later (see previous post for link). In fact, I’ll post it here as well. I also have more tutorial-like videos like Bert Monroy for you: Photoshop User TV, The Russell Brown Show and Photoshop Killer Tips [iTunes Links].

I had a bit of a break today, though. We went to the Lewes Horticultural Show (or something to that effect) to take some photos for the newsletter or magazine that they want to produce with them. I would post some of them, but I don’t have my camera cable with me. You can see them another day.
