|Thinking about what-life-is-all-about and also what should I have for dinner.|
I have been on my fair share of videos, tv shows, and movie but this is the 1st time I am actually in a stop motion video!
So what happened was a group of friends and I volunteered to be part of this project by National Gallery Singapore and DBS. We went on down to the gallery and help them did some shoot to create a stop motion video. Inspired by them, we thought why shouldn't we do something ourselves instead of just shooting others. I mean, I believe I look quite good myself to have my own stopmo right?
Stop motion videos ain't exactly difficult to do. Pris has this app on her iphone - Stop Motion. (I know, like super direct name. You can just go onto app store and download it.) So the rule of thumb is simple, background and camera stays as still as possible and the subject(s) in there have to move around.
So without thinking much about it or coming out with a mood board or what not we decided to go with the subject call "Beng Fall". (A bit like Adele's skyfall but not really.)
This is when you decided to do a squat on the top of the stairs. Ah Beng Squat is a very dangerous stunt, so kids, do not try this at home without adult supervision.
As I understand that we are all growing older as I am. So I have decided to make a slower version for you
old people guys in case you missed my brilliant acting skill.
And since I already have the pictures and I thought why waste it? I did a erm... reversed version and call it Beng Up! (I mean that's the whole idea of milking things right? Like some director who had a good script and just keeps on recycling it to make part 2,3,4,5 and god knows until 99 or more.
And stop motion videos doesn't stop at just human being silly. It can also be used on other subjects like toys, fruits and etc. Like my childhood favourite - Soupe Opera!
Hope you guys have fun watching this cause we sure had fun making it!!
