This is a little video I made with my younger brother Paul this morning; he's worked on the apple puppet since last December when I ventured into puppet-making and has been wanting to try all this animation business for himself. Involved with this was an integrated laptop camera, Stop Motion Pro (trial), good ol' Lego, and our dining-room table. It goes by pretty quick - I left the timing and movement up to him, only overseeing some of the follow-through with the truck collision (kept it pretty basic), but everything else was his doing - he even thought to block some of the sunlight initially hitting the white explosion card - so we may have a stop-motion animator in the making:)
Right now he's running around outside in the wind and sun with a kite-tail tied to the back of his hat.
