I made this stopmotion type video using WMM ( Windows Movie Maker) and uploading it to Vimeo. It took me two days to make because you have to tinker with the picture only slightly each time which is very time consuming! This video uses a total of exactly 51 pictures that I created on Microsoft Paint and 1 title 4 scene changers and credits at the end. All of that for 34 seconds of movie! Each Picture only flashes for one tenth of a second and the scene changers go for 2 seconds. I am sorry to all the readers that like happy endings because this movie does not have one! I am also sorry to the readers and watchers who like morals because the video doesn’t have that either. But some good does come of it because it took me a while to figure out how to make it so I learnt how to make stopmotion videos! Hope you Sort of enjoy it! Oh yeah and the bit after the cool pirate the sheep thinks ‘Oh no Pirates’
I forgot the music Attribution so here it is:
