stop motion camera dolly

Filed under: film,projects — howarth frank @ 10:16 am

This is the set up I used, to shoot one of the scenes in the upcoming 3rd installment of the making of Calvin’s desk movie.  The scene is a stop motion sequence of the finish going on the back of the desk, with the camera following the edge of the finish.  The rig consisted of the track and camera dolly.  the dolly is pulled by a string by being wound around a dowel.  I geared the dowel so I could turn it a set amount for each frame in the movie.  At the other end of the dolly is tensioning string
