more delicious stop motion

today was one of those days.  i don't know if you get them, the day when you're crabby no matter what and you just want to lie in bed and do nothing...?
yeah that's me today.
but i did stumble upon another great stop animation video. these always cheer me up. 
i made one in college over the christmas break once so i know exactly how much time and meticulous planning it takes.  but they're like pure magic unfolding and so worth it in the end.
i want to make another one soon, but i've always been stumped on the script idea.  maybe i should just skip that and make one about nothing.  just to do it again.  
oh and in case you're wondering why i can't post my film in this blog entry.  it's not online and the dvd is in canada. it will have to wait for another time.  but here's this:
(what do you do to cheer up?)


  1. Wow, what a fun video. I enjoyed it very much, very creative and great fun....It cheered me up too.

  2. Nice! I really liked that one. I wonder if this was more difficult than the OK Go video. There's lots of planning involved with either one. I hope you get to do some more stop-motion soon. I'm actually plotting one out, and I hope to shoot it as soon as I have a good chunk of time.
    Oh, and some of my cheering resources: comedians, sitcoms, Flight of the Conchords, and anything that can make me laugh. Going out is also good. Just make sure you don't take a lot of money, or at least don't go near shops and hairdressers.

  3. That is awesome!!! I loved it! I think you should try doing one again! I would love to see what you came up with. Then, I think you should post a tutorial on how to do it, so the people who are brave enough can try doing it themselves!haha! Very cool!


  4. Oh I've a lot of those days, and to cheer me up...I read blogs...;)
    Oh, and the video, amazing!

    Hmmm, when I need to cheer up it usually involves a big mug of hot chocolate, some snuggles with DH or my daughter, and a good book!
