My name is Haruko Napochka, and I am totally newbie here. Mostly, I've been making/learning cut-out, but thanks to your web site, I've started experimenting wire armatures and tie downs with my paper marionettes.
Today, I've just constructed a handmade multiplane set for my new cut-out project, and I ran into a very basic problem : CAMERA SHAKE.
As you may see in my attached video (http://youtu.be/nYhGyJ-pQYE), everything is wobbling. I'd like to make it stay still, so I stuffed around the camera stand with some bubble wraps. But they did not worked well.
During test shooting, I realized that in every 2 frames, it shakes vertically, then in horizontal direction in the next 2 frames...
Before asking you, I will write down the details of my set and camera below :
Size of my set : (L) 750 mm (W) 450 (H) 1500 with 4 glasses
Camera : Nikon D90 with Nikkor VR lens 18-55mm
Camera stand : LPL CSC10, which is fixed by 2 screws on the lumber stuck on the wall
Scale of my room : Approx. 8.25 m2 (I've been using my loft for shooting painted in all black)
Thank you for reading this, and thank you in advance !
Thank you so much, StopmoNick! I didn't expected that I could receive a good encouragement from you, too. So I'm honored. That would be nice! Not in every cinema, but one cinema company applied my film, and it will be screened until February, 2016. This news made me excited. I appreciate all who advised and helped me a lot!
That was very well made, I think it should be shown before the movie in every cinema! Thank you for coming back to show us how it turned out - it's always good to know when the advice we give is actually helpful.
