Part 1: Three Tips Before Making a Stunning Stop Motion Video in iMovie
Before taking about the detailed steps of making stop-motion videos, let's learn some useful tips first.
1. Plan and Organize
Create a storyboard before you actually get into the making! Your focus needs to be on single images that together create a story. Think through the different scenes and elements you want in your motion video, have ready scrip, and mentally visualize the story.
2. One Shot!
Make sure that you get the images right the very first time to save time on editing every single image later.
3. Enhance with Audio
While audio isn’t the central feature of a stop-motion film, it definitely enhances and heightens the final result. Utilize the energy to add creative elements that heighten the motion video as a whole and not just individual images.
