Join us on set of our latest stop motion video and see us in action with this behind-the-scenes/interview created with @Instagram (watch until the end to see the process!) ❤️ Thank you, @Instagram, for the opportunity! I had a lot of fun dancing the night away with Shiny Bone Jones 🎃 I hope everyone had a great Halloween!
Here's a behind the scenes video for the 'Alien Duel' #stopmotion scene featuring 132 #longexposure#lightpainting photographs - watch until the end to see the final work 👽 Each photograph is around a 2-minute exposure freehand drawn by @dariustwin using @dtnightwriter. The photos were captured over 6 hours of shooting at night. There are no visual effects added, all photos are straight out of camera. 🎵 is 'Someone Else' by @tourist.
who wants to join in on my next jazzercise class? 46 light painting photos in this one, all straight out of camera with @dariustwin. these videos are so tough, for darren (he is a genius 🙏❤️) but also for me 😅 slow motion modeling all motions frame by frame, keeping track of the pacing and the movements, to make sure everything is fluid when they are all combined together. while i am in one pose, i have to think about the pose i did just before and also the pose that i am about to do next, in order to stay up to speed so i don't get lost in the motions 🤯 i often think of ways to stylize the movements or to add in extra details like facial expressions and reactions, all while making sure they are in time with the light illustration's movements and actions. these extra details often come to me while we are actually creating the piece. another difficult aspect is holding the motions/poses throughout each photograph so there is no blur. so when i am doing motions with my hands in the air or while bending my knees or dancing, i hold each frame of that motion for 2-3 minutes each and my muscles are absolutely burningggg 🔥. this happens for anywhere between 24 - 300 photographs/frames in a single night. by the end, i am worn out both physically and mentally, but i swear there is no other art form that i have done in my life that gives me so much satisfaction and accomplishment 🥰

The photos were captured over 4 hours of shooting at night. There are no visual effects added, all photos are straight out of camera. 🎵 is 'Out For The West' by @thecastanets.
This was one of the toughest #lightpainting#stopmotion projects for us yet - it took us over 6 hours to complete! We almost skipped over a few of the scenes because we were both starting to feel sick and exhausted, and just wanted to be done with it. However, we were able to power through because we knew it would be worth it. The last few scenes you see here were done in a complete state of delirium, but somehow, some way, they still look great. This is a true example of the phrase 'never give up' - because now we have an epic 'Alien Duel' scene to add to our collection 👽💫 - There are 132 photographs in this scene, all straight out of camera. No visual effects added. I am wearing a dress by @lirika.matoshi and jewelry by @shashinyc.
(Sound on) Here's a behind the scenes video I edited together for our recent 'Abduction' stop motion scene featuring 45 #longexposure#lightpainting photographs - watch until the end to see the final product 👽🖖 Each photograph is a 3-minute exposure drawn by hand by @dariustwin using his @dtnightwriter. The photos were captured over 3 hours of shooting at night. There are no visual effects added, each photo is straight out of camera. 🎵 is 'Friendly Aliens' by @chadvangaalen.
Lately, I have been focusing all efforts on these #lightpainting#stopmotion projects that I collaborate on with my husband @dariustwin ❤️ These videos bring a sense of accomplishment, inspiration and happiness unlike any other photo/video project I have worked on before. While they are extremely difficult to achieve, the end product makes the cold and windy nights totally worth it. We always review the scene on the back of the camera when we are finished and we both get so giddy inside while looking at our hard work and ideas brought to *light* 💫
