Updates You'll Heart This February!

Hello everyone, and welcome to our first monthly update!

With the popularity of Youtube and Tiktok tutorials, it certainly felt like a gamble to launch our stop motion blog in the latter half of 2021. In fact, we had no idea if it would work at all--until you guys came along, making us do the happy dance with your subscriptions!

To show our love and appreciation for you, we'll be making a few exciting changes that we'll deliver through our monthly updates, such as this one.


So, are you ready to know what we have in store for you for The Month of Love?


First, the weekly tutorials!


Of course, we can't forget the usual lessons you'll get from this blog. This month, you'll be learning about:

  1. The 3 Reasons Why You Need to Animate in Reverse

  2. How to Seamlessly Mix Animation with Live Video (no green screen necessary!)

  3. The 4 Ways to Film Behind-The-Scenes Timelapse for stop motion

  4. The Art of Focus Pulling, and How You Can Use It in Stop Motion

Apart from the tutorials, we'll also be adding new sections to the blog in the near future, including:


Interviews!


Tutorials are great. But we have to admit, reading technical stuff all the time can get a bit boring.


To offer you some respite from stop motion information overload, we'll soon be including fun interviews from professional stop-motion artists.

We'll ask our guests all aspects of pursuing a stop motion career, such as how they got their start, their creative process, as well as the details of running their business!


Contests and Giveaways!


Maybe it's because we're Asian, but we love giving (and receiving) presents. So we figured, why not use this website to share some cool things with our precious members?

In the past few weeks, we've been crafting ideas for contests that will encourage you guys to flex your new skills and win some fantastic prizes in the process--including a trip to...


Just kidding...

But we'll still definitely be giving away all sorts of stuff, including animator tool kits and rigs you'll find helpful in your work. So keep your eyes peeled!

 

Whew! So there you have it, our first official monthly update! We're so excited to add new stuff to our blog, and we hope you are, too. If you have any more ideas for the blog, let us know in the comments!
