Stop Motion is the succession of images photo by photo simulating a fluid movement using static objects that gradually change position in each image.
This style of animation is analogue, so it requires time and attention to detail to achieve a reproduction of images in which the right speed will give the viewer the sensation of movement in the film they are watching.
Mobile phone cameras are usually the most commonly used tool for this technique, although we must bear in mind that it is not a professional job. A Stop Motion animated video can be made with an infinite number of materials with an approximate number of 12 frames every second so that the animation is fluid.
There are a number of factors to take into account such as lighting, strategic placement of cameras and everything that will be part of each frame. It is very common to use artificial light and continuous light so that it does not vary during the different camera shots.
All the images that are taken must be put together using an editing program; in such a way that they are sequenced and certain adjustments can be applied to them in terms of colour or exposure.
