Photo project: The Last Girl at Elon

This story takes place here at Elon, and features a girl who manages to sleep all the way until summer break.  The story is rather simple, but I tried my best to make the action a little bit more intense by using the burst mode on the camera.  This mode captured some exciting action and showed it in almost real-time.  Towards the end, I started to use longer fades to build up suspense for what is about to be revealed.  I believe those cuts as well as the music selection allowed for a good bit of suspense.

  1. Your photostory was another favorite of mine. Stop motion is definitely a talent of yours. The story was very suspenseful and kept my attention all the way through. Watch out for some focus issues next time.

  2. This was such a fantastic project because of the structure. I loved how you mixed stop motion photos with still photos. Great job with that. I also think that the story line was very clever and very funny. I actually laughed when I saw that it was actually summer break. Just watch out for the two pictures that were sideways. It just threw me off a little bit. Excellent job!

  3. Great story. Good use of different speeds at different times. The walking across the sidewalk was great. The weather really cooperated and made it feel like summer. And the Smith Jackson touch really rocked!

    You did a really good job with the stop motion in some parts of your story and it was so easy to follow. Your lighting was good and your storyline was funny. You did a great job!

  6. For most of the story, I was unsure of what was happening but I knew enough to stay enthralled by the story and when the twist happened at the end it all instantly made sense. Your stop motion sequences were well put together as well as being placed in good points of the story.

  7. My favorite part of the video was when Steph threw her bag on the ground and ran away! Nice stop motion.

  8. Your storyline was very creative. And may I say, the star of your photostory is FINE.

    The conflict was a little unclear at first but this is one of my favorite videos regardless. The variations of shots made this very engaging and interesting.

  12. I loved this story – it was well done and very clear. The pictures were really interesting and although you got close to repeating some of the pictures – you didn’t and that was impressive. Great job!

    Yours was in my top two! I loved the use of stop motion within this and it wasn’t choppy, but at the same time the story was interesting. Amazing job!

  15. I don’t know how she didn’t realize it was summer… Maybe I missed a part. It was a well made video, however.
