Step 1: Pick a Song

Before you can decide what to do for your stop motion music video, you need a song. A shorter song would be easiest. The song I used was over 3 minutes which made it quite difficult. A faster, more upbeat song will be easiest. http://songza.com/ is a good resource for finding a song. They use a music concierge system to find songs based on your mood/current activities/enviroment. Picking a song can be a long process and your song choice might change a few times throughout your planning based on your ideas.

Step 2: Brainstorm

Once you have your song picked out, it's time to brainstorm and plan out what you want to do. Plan out what you want to want to be doing and what you want going on in the background as well. Most people plan out based on the lyrics and what the song is talking about during that time.
cool have you guys ever done a stopmotion animation with objects instead of people?
