It’s not easy task making stop motion duck films…..from building the sets, making the mini props, making the costumes, the endless hours of photographing ducks, then re-shooting, then piecing everything together with music and a script. It’s definitely takes a good chunk of time. I don’t do it too often, but there happens to be a film festival out here called the “Three Cubed Film Fest.” Participants have 3 weeks to create a 3 minute film based on a title given to them. This time around everyone was given a phrase to complete on their own by filling in the blanks to this title: “A ___ Walks into a ___.” I was going to just go with the obvious “A Duck Walks Into a Bar,” but I tweaked it a little to make it a little more interesting. I ended up with “A Duck Walks Into a Watering Hole” and make it a ‘film noir’ style flick. The film will be finished next weekend and go live on Duckshow! Stay tuned for that! In the meantime, I’m going to post a few of my favorite shots from the film this week.
