Dance of The Corn Dollies – 1 min Stop Frame Animation

I made ‘Dance of The Corn Dollies’ when I recently applied for a role as creative content/self shooter with a video branding company.  I wanted my application to stand out among the many hundreds of CVs that they would receive so I created something visual to support this. The idea came about because I always wanted to make a live action/animation featuring corn dollies with a theme of the English Pastoral the maypole on the village green, an English Albion in animation. The characters were made from sugar paste and added twigs to the corn dolly characters. I filmed with Panasonic DVC 30 and the SAM stop motion software with a playback (animation plays back) of 10.2 frames per second although the frames are jerky I felt this speed worked the best.

My job application was unsuccessful but I will be creating another stop motion with a similar theme in time for St. George’s Day using a more pliable clay dough material.  In the meantime here is ‘Dance of The Corn Dollies’ with a royalty free soundtrack ‘The Forest and The Trees” by Kevin MacLeod.
