SATURDAY NIGHT PARTY
At the October 16th meeting, François and Keith made a lot of progress on our stop motion film project. Being in suite 700 really helped since they were able to set up in a bedroom and work without distractions and the effects of ambient lighting.
Unfortunately, this means they missed most of the meeting as well. With a bit of luck, and François’ work schedule permitting, the last of the shooting will be completed at the November20th meeting.
And below, a rough cut of what our completed stop motion film will look like.
François has sent us a clip from the stop motion film project.
Another one bites the dust!
At the August MonSFFA meeting, François Ménard was able to film two more segments for our stop motion project.
I’m really impressed wit the “splash” in the diplo segment which I was able to watch being filmed.

François has sent me the latest rushes from the MonSFFA stop motion project!! Those asteroids are really moving, dinos haven’t a chance!
Next month we take a break from the filming to host our mega book sale, but then in August, François and Keith plan to try completing the filming. It’s possibly still going to take more time, but plans are under way to set up some sessions outside our meeting dates.
