This is amazing. I can tell you've spent a lot of time on this and it is remarkable. I think if you are finished with the blog, you should maybe embed the final video and then put some sort of artistic statement and maybe a quick synopsis? I really like the music you used as well. I've seen showings of animated videos where I go to school that my peers have made, and I can say your's is better. Kudos!

Hi Sumaiya,
Thanks for your comment on Making Wanted. I love your set and movie, it looks great! And I see we have the same victrola :o)
What software program do you use? The little Supreme Zero movie I star in was made using iMovie, but it's not stop motion. DJ (my human who's making all this) is thinking of buying Dragon stop motion software, but we're still pretty far away from being ready to start filming. Apparently we have loads of things to still do, including figuring out how to tie me down to the set (shudder) so I can walk and stuff. It ain't easy being an actor-bear.

Hi Sumaiya,
I wrote back to you on my comment page, but I'm still not sure how thing blogging goes and if you somehow get the comment response? Anyway, it's there, but I also wanted to ask you, are those just dollhouse lights in your movie? They're very effective.

Don't tell DJ I called her a guy :D ... I thought my online buddy Lenor was a guy too, until she told me otherwise ;)

Yah...I do get my blog comments emailed to me, but if you like, you could email me directly at smehreen@gmail.com

Regarding the lights, it's a long story...but I'll tell you any way since I love talking about that project :D

I used table lamps with low voltage bulbs from different angles in most of the shots...you know, the Key Light/Fill Light deal. One of the lamp shades was red, which gave off the cool warm light in some shots. In the darkened room scene where the guy is reading his letter, I used a real candle which was hidden just behind the wall. That's why the light was different on each frame, creating the flicker effect. Hope this helps. :D
