A very short sequence made from printer paper, scissors and Blue-Tac. Total time from sketch to output approx. 45 minutes. Just a jumping off point to play with more timing and motion.
As usual I get in over my head and I wanted to have the clouds move by from left to right slowly as the clip rolls. Only I underestimated the amount of work it took just to do this tiny bit of bird flight.
But given that today I've got nothing on I'm digging in again! :P
Maybe this is a bit over the top, but you could try using layers of glass to separate the bird and clouds to create more depth. Its quite simple to do and the effect is very striking.
