This video took SO MUCH LONGER than you would think!

I used a tripod and a light tent with three lights, and took photos with my camera to get this stop motion effect.

in between each photo I had to slightly move these popcorn kernels around into different shapes! I ended up using 188 photos for this 15 second video.

I also had to multitask and actually pop some popcorn on my stove to use at the end of my video!

It was a long process and I had a hard time getting everything into Adobe Premiere the way I wanted it. I really had a vision of this being a GIF that would play on loop, but unfortunately I couldn’t figure out how to do that! A project for the future….

Hope you enjoy my video!
