His name is Einstein.
Since I was young, I’ve had an odd fascination with stop-motion. Now it’s time to try it out.
I gave six weeks notice (yeah, I’m good like that) at my coffee shop job 4 weeks ago. My impending unemployment hangs over my head. This will be my first time having to work constantly since I was fifteen. This means, I need some goals for August.
I’m not worried about work or money (thanks to student loans and the fact that people love to hire me), but it will absolutely kill me if I am not productive.
So this brings us to my new friendship with Einstein. Though our relationship may be frustrating at times, we will work through it.
Before I went on vacation to Indiana (because it’s cheap and a break from NYC where I can say “Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t get cellphone reception” and have people believe it) I played around with Einstein a little. We came up with this.
It’s not much, but it’s a start. I’m all over the place with shots. I used my iPhone. Most of the shots are different instagram filters… but, I really did get a taste for how involved it is to get Einstein to move around.
It’s intense. Einstein wasn’t even doing any continuous moving and it took half an hour just to get these pictures together. I have a lot in store for me, but I will make at least one short (probably very short) stop motion with Einstein before this summer is over.
August Goal Number 1: Make Einstein a star.
