Sneak-Peek of My Next Stopmotion: Strike of the Sleep Deprivation

I’ve had this stopmotion completely planned out for the past three months but am only now getting to work on it!

I’m pretty excited for it. At first, I called it All-Nighter Perils, but Strike of the Sleep Deprivation sounds a lot better.

I’ve plotted it out using a three-act structure as well as proper scene structure, so I can’t wait to see how you like the plot compared to my other AGSMs.

Chloe is the protagonist. She suffers from… well, let her tell you in the following intro!

The music and voiceovers won’t stay; I just put them in real quick so you could get an idea. I have yet to perfect Chloe’s unique voice tone, pick out the perfect music, and make a featured image for it.

But I hope you enjoy these first six clips!

There are 79 clips; I have six filmed already, and I film 12 clips a week… so I hope to be finished filming in about eight weeks (it should only take me 6.5 weeks but I have a small vacation in the middle).

Editing, though…ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

I also can’t wait for the filming to be over.

My dolls have all been in their PJs for the past three months and I have a ton of other photostory and photoshoot ideas but for the entire film they have to be in their PJs, in their beds.ย ๐Ÿ˜ž

Maybe I should film faster. XD

What do you think of the stopmotion? What doll projects are you working on? Let’s be accountability buddies to overcome procrastination.ย ๐Ÿ˜†

      Thanks so much, Xyra! The computer is an old Pleasant Company one from 1997 — I actually got it from someone who collected a few old doll things and gave it to me for my birthday!

    Oh my gosh Madi, so my family has had the flu ALL last week, (lots of complaining, sleeping, and waking up to vomit) (I donโ€™t know how or why I havenโ€™t caught it but itโ€™s amazing) and my dad promised everyone that weโ€™ll have ice cream and maybe brownies when everyone gets better. That was few days ago. Now heโ€™s resorted to โ€œif you get better by Monday Iโ€™ll get Little Cesarโ€™sโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Most crazily, ~Olive

    I would love to accountability partners! I never have the motivation to film, and I’m working on a mini summer movie.
    It requires lots of different sets, costumes and even a car. The thing is, I don’t have a green screen and I want it to look like their driving. Do you have any ideas on how I could do it?

      Madison May 24, 2018 at 4:09 pm - Reply

      YAY! It’s really hard to get the motivation to film, especially complicated films like that.

      Hmm… I’d suggest finding a nice patch of sidewalk (hopefully clear from passerby) and using yellow chalk to make road guidelines down the middle. Then stopmotion your dolls in a car going down the sidewalk.

      That’s what I did in this stopmotion (first one on the page)!
