Home Again - My first Stop Motion film

Hey guys!Thought I would show my first film to the experts on here; some of the mistakes I learnt when doing this film was that the rig removal had something off cause the part where the rig was is brighter than the non-rig area. Also, I think I skipped a few frames. Other than that, I hope it's not that bad for a first film, cant wait to do more!Any feedback is appreciated. :)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uQXAzn-3ZMSee More

"Fluorescent lights flicker very rapidly.  I once shot a live action miniature effect at 48 frames per second on my Bolex, and the constant flicker was horrible.  But for animation I take longer exposures, at least a half second and usually…"

Need help (upgrading light setup)

Hey guys,I want to upgrade my lights but confused about whether to buy LED lights or photography lights with a softbox. From what I can tell, the softbox lights use fluorescent lights which I think are bad for stop motion animation as they flicker? Can someone please guide me on which one to buy. Here are some links on the 2 options of light kits I confused about.…See More
