Placing your camera

When you are beginning to make stop action movies, you basically have two choices for your camera placement.

You can shoot down or across. Which you choose will depend on what is happening in your movie. Let's look at some simple things to remember when you are placing your camera.


If you choose to shoot down to capture your frames, you'll need a support for your camera or iPad. This quick stop action animation will lead you through the steps of building your PVC camera support.
