Kreo Transformers stop motion - Autobots VS Decepticons

This is a video for the promotion of Kreo Transformers from Hasbro , and for some reason ,
I have to finish this video before 2012 arrives, so this video I speed up the production and
in total plus the musics and sounds effects, this video only took me 10 days for production.
and average around 3300-3500 pictures.

And here is the video:

Now lets check the behind the scenes pictures:

                                                                      The toys

The scene is in the floor of my room 

As these toys are heavy and weak in the joints, you must use lots of tools to hold the body

The box comes with pieces, and they can assemble to a vehicle or a robot

Each box comes with 2-3 small toy figures

As the figures body are too heavy, this mean the joints will no going to be strong 
enough, so I have to use some tapes in the joints.

The scene where Megatron jumps was holding by hand 

And for the explosion scene, the same technic, just adding some green screens. 
The same with the starscream Jet mode

 And final here is a picture of Optimus Prime. 

Thanks also to Zoetrope international for the nice background music.

Transformers Stop Motion - Race and Destroy

Hello everyone, this is another video I made for TheGameStation youtube channel,
this is the fight between Bumble Bee and Barricade, the first minute was a racing
scene, I study the game "Need for Speed" for the camera movements of the cars,
the last two minutes of the video of cource is the fight and transform of the robots.
This video took me 2 month of production and around 3500 pictures.

Please check the video first:

Below is the main characters of this video, bumble bee and Barricade,
they are actually very small in the size.

This video was shot in a small room of my house,the walls in the video are Gundam model boxes.

Corners is an ideal location to shot drift scenes.

Car in the sky was holding by my hand, 
then deleted in After effects with layers

The TV screen in the background of this video is just a blue screen, after the key, just insert the video shot I want and will appear like the image in the video.

The explosion is also blue screen, I use blue instead of green because the color of Bumble bee is yellow and this may affect the result of the green screen. 

Here are some shots of the video that I liked

 Ok, and here is all the main skills of this video, actually is pretty simple, and hope you
guys enjoy the video, see you next time in the next stop motion project.

BTY,I will post every new information and progress of my videos in my facebook channel,
Please visit me sometime on facebook.
