My brother showed me this stop-motion video because we were planning to make one ourselves. He told me about this video a couple of weeks ago, but I did not watch it until today when he was hanging out in my room. As a communication major who does videos, I am pretty amazed. They have a lot of patience to do this. This is really awesome, watch it guys! 🙂
TECHNICAL EXPLANATION FOR GEEKS LIKE US: We changed shirts over 100 times each, taking individual pictures of each unique shirt. The designs on the shirts are not photoshopped. They are real shirts for each frame of animation. The video was exported at 30fps, while the T-shirt animation moves at 6fps (with a few exceptions where it moves faster) So, for each shirt, we took 5 pictures, so the animation of us (Rhett&Link) moves at 30fps, but the T-shirt animations move a bit slower. There are a few places where the motion seems so smooth that it looks like video. That’s because, in those parts, there was no changing in T-shirts, and Joe used burst mode to capture the frames, making it look very smooth.
