Saber and Gundam stop motion fight

Hello guys, its been quite a long time since my last video related to Gundams, so I decided to make
another one with them, this time, will be adding a new guest, Saber from Fate, its one of the most
coolest articulated toys from Figma, so lets check first this video:


This video in total is around 3000-3500 pictures, and took me exactly 30 days to finish this,
including musics,etc.

Below are some of the behind the scenes pictures:

                             First of all, the battle field is in front of my computers, saves time to take pictures and
                            then edit them in the computer.

                                 
                                   Our main character, Saber, it has three different facial expressions to change.

Also many different hand poses, I can do many actions with these items.

Many of the lightning or shadows I do it with tools I can find closely, 
I prefer this time not to use too much in special effects.

                                       
                             Most of the flying objects was held by my hands and erase them with software.

The O, the lightning I prefer to add some light layers instead of 
starwars style light saber. 


                           Below are some screen cuts that I liked the most.









Well, this is all for this video, the makings are actually simple, but everything took a lot of time,
its just matter of practice.

Hope you guys enjoy the video, and see you next time in next stop motion video.

Regards
John H.

  1. This look great, it looks much smoother than the previous stopmotion's, what fps did you shot it at?

  2. This was fantastic. I love your camera-work, you have a real cinematic eye and you add a bunch of little things to make the models seem more lifelike like the fidgeting of the armor, the occasional eye glowing. Really amazing work.

    Can I ask what you use to insert the special effects for the guns and beam rifles firing?

    1. Hello, thanks for your kind message, all the effects was done with Adobe after effects, you can search this software on google.

  3. The movie was epic! Did you finish all the frames one by one using the camera? I thought some of the scenes were too smooth to be shot in single frames.

    BTW, the last bgm was fantanstic (Ode to Joy Metal Version? or whatever the name is...). Where did you find it?
