The video will be 30 seconds to one minute long (ok if goes longer, not shorter) with music that relates.
There will be three photos per second, so figure that will be anywhere from 90- 180 frames.
Your video must have some illusion of animation- ie surfing across the football field, flying in the air, dancing shoes, drawing etc. It takes time to do so- BE PATIENT. The more time you plan and spend in the shooting stage, the better the final outcome.
Take your photographs on a tripod, staying in one place. You can do two different areas with your thirty seconds, just be sure they relate somehow.
To make your stop motion video in iMovie:
1. File > new project > create
2. File > project properties > initial photo placement > fill to frame (take off the Ken Burns style/ on bottom)
3. Click on the camera icon on the middle right hand side of iMovie > Drag the photographs from the stop motion into the top left workspace
4. Preview how it looks by using the arrow button below the workspace- add or delete any photos that don't make sense
5. Add music to the stop motion video by clicking on the music icon on the right hand side of iMovie and scroll down to sample what you want to use. Drag the clip to the workspace on the top left.
6. TO SAVE:
Share > Export using Quicktime > lastname.firstname.stopmotion.mov
