GNARLY GHOST BOARDS

I BOARDED GNARLY GHOST LAST SUMMER ON A STACK OF POST IT NOTES WHILE COMMUTING TO AND FROM NICKELODEON. I FOUND IT WAS A REALLY EASY WAY TO CONCISELY AND INTUITIVELY LAY OUT A STORY. I WANTED TO BE SURE THE SHORT WAS ACHIEVABLE USING A COMBINATION OF STOP MOTION AND 3D WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON DYNAMIC CAMERA ANGLES AND INTERESTING COMPOSITIONS. I TOOK THE TECHNICAL PROCESS OF EACH SHOT INTO ACCOUNT IN THE BOARDING STAGE AND CONSIDERED HOW A MIXED MEDIA APPROACH COULD BE UTILIZED TO SAVE TIME AND EXPAND THE PROJECT. INITIALLY I PLANNED TO SHOOT THIS ALL MYSELF BEFORE MOSOMOS OFFERED TO LET ME USE THEIR STAGE AND MOTION CONTROL SYSTEM, ALLOWING US TO DO SOME AWESOME CAMERA MOVES! CHECK OUT HOW IT TRANSLATED TO THE FINAL IN THE VIDEO TO THE RIGHT!
