Step 1: Step 1: Setting Up
Other Things you will need.
- Camera for use on your stop motion program.
- You will need sheet metal
- Large paper to cover it
Step 2: Step 2: Basic Movement
- Move one leg forward at a time, with small, careful movements.
- Keep one leg back on the ground, as the other moves forward.
- Make the arms sway as the toy walks, for a more realistic movement.
- Move the opposite arm in the same direction as the leg (Right leg moves forward, left arm moves forward).
Step 3: Step 3: Advanced Movements
One more advanced, yet simple movement is falling.
- Make the character lean in, and have one of his legs kick backwards up into the air.
- Then bring him down face first, if needed you can hold the character by a piece that is off screen, and bring it down from there.
- Make sure to bring the limbs down, so it looks correct.
Step 4: Step 4: Falling/Hitting
- Move the arm/leg from one character into another, simulating contact between the two.
- The one who is hit moves in the back away from the hit, falling backwards, you could hold the feet off camera, and lean it back until it hits the ground.
