make your own downshoot!
do you like to test your frames often?
or do you need instant gratifaction to satisfy your ADD or ADHD?
would you like to be able to multiply your animating/testing locations?
well i do. and thus i made my own custom home/portable-ish downshoot
it took me about an hour and a half, it cost me $0 because i used scraps at the woodshop and i had the clamps
i did it with the clamps because of the lack-of-space factor/i dont like extraneous material factor, and because i can hook the camera up to my computer and using istop motion see what it looks like immediately
mine, however is made specifically for my digital camera which is about the size of the cigarette box, which held there with a rubber band for sturdiness when pressing the shutter button...i put the camera face down in front of it...if i had another digi cam i would show you but you probably get it (the hole is for when the lens comes out of my camera and since there is a large cut out i can move it...duh)
if this seems like something you could use or want email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and lemme know ill help you/make it for you/give you plans whatever its super easy
