Guess what? It's Bach's birthday on March 31 (1685). And guess what we got him for his 328th birthday? This awesome stop-motion music video of us playing the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 with KAZOOS.
To make this awesome video, we used a great iPhone app called Frameographer by Studio Neat. With Frameographer, you can make stop-motion and timelapse videos in HD - and it's pretty easy.
We don't have any fancy equipment, so we had to find a well-lit space and improvise our set. We ended up using a laptop case for the background!
We taped our portable tripod to the top of a stackastuff and got going.
With Frameographer, you "capture" frames one by one just as if you're taking a picture.
When you're done, you can delete any where your hands are accidentally still in the frame (ahem).
Decide what frame-rate you think Lily would prefer and then save the masterpiece to your camera roll. (We read somewhere that dogs see at a higher frame rate than humans - is that why they're so good at catching treats in their mouths?) Voila!
It couldn't have been simpler and we had a LOT of fun.
I rest my face.
