Original Idea

This was my original idea. I wanted a figure to walk across the banner and at every step the shoe would change into a different shoe/colour. In the first stages replacing the shoes and keeping the footage the same for each shot was proving difficult. When playing the footage back it failed to look fluent and looked disjointed on each step. I then would have to mask the still images so that I could only see the shoe and the leg up to the ankle, then work on each shoe and leg individually and place them over the previous. Then I would have to adjust each frames position using track motion, however after asking for advice, I found that it would be difficult to achieve a realistic effect as the shoe shape was not rectangular. At this point I decided to re-think this idea and work with stop-motion where I would have a lot more control over the images.
