靴下物語 (Sock Story)

A one and a half minute fantasy short, combining live action footage and stop-motion animation.

This was produced on a micro budget (mostly consisting of my travel expenses when going to pick up the camera I was borrowing). The resources used were:

  • blue-tac
  • a stripy sock
  • an aspiring composer
  • a Japanese person
  • armature wire
  • a borrowed Panasonic GH3
  • a 14mm lens and a borrowed 20mm lens
  • an M42 lens adapter and a vintage 50mm Pentacon lens
  • a sturdy borrowed Ravelli tripod
  • a box of Shreddies
  • masking tape
  • a borrowed Rode VideoMic Pro
  • a PC with Sony Vegas Pro 13, Paint Shop Pro 7 and MonkeyJam

I shot several animation/live action tests as well, which can be seen here:
