Allllll Aboard!

video

Here's the latest from The Railway Steam Gallop, the stop-motion short film I'm working on with animator Kaj Pindal. It was a lot of fun shooting this scene as much of the previous shots build up to this moment of tension where the trains just miss eachother " - by a MILLImetre!" It's also been a super-neat experience and pleasure working with Kaj so far, who is an endless source of ideas, experience, advice, (good stories!!), and not to mention humour. Anyways, enjoy!

Nice!

Did you just take cars off the track when they hit the sky set?

heh yeah, you can tell right at the end (they look like they're dropping off the edge of the world), I imagine we'll be cutting before it comes to that in the final edit.

Carla these shots are looking awesome. Well done capturing the tension of the moment.

You're so lucky to be working with Kaj!! Are you still working on this? Keep us posted :)

hey Melanie! Friday was my last day; the film isn't quite at a final editing stage - it needs sound added, and visual tweaks from there. It was a REALLY neat experience working with Kaj; I'm going to miss that.

Kai showed this in our lecture this year, what a fun idea!
