Frames is a mixed media animation using pixilation, stop motion animation, green screen compositing, paper cutout, and live action video.  The film was shot with a variety of different cameras including the Canon 5D Mark II for most of the live action.  The Nikon D40x was used for still capture and stop motion animation while a small Panasonic DMC-ZS3 was used for a few extra shots.  Dragon Stop Motion was used to capture the frames for animation and After Effects was used to put the entire film together.
