Nativity Stop-Go Animation by yours truly

With a couple of hours free this afternoon and the limey household getting into the festive spirit I decided to have a play with the family knock about Nativity set. The set in question is one my wife bought for our daughter a few years ago specifically as a set for playing with. So often you see nativity sets that are too precious to let kids fiddle with. The grandparents one is such a set and it has the marks to prove young hands can be clumsy.

Every year the limey daughter looks forward to this set coming out and it gets played with regularly over the Christmas period.

So, with a few hours going spare and the daughter at school, I grabbed my camera and tripod and had a play with Stop-Go animation

The result is 500 photos and 50 seconds of amusement thanks to Windows Live Movie Maker. There is much I can do to improve it. But hey, lets not start getting picky just yet.

Enjoy!

  1. Cute! Although I must admit, I’m confused — I thought babies came out of their mother’s wombs, and didn’t just materialize in mangers. 😀

    Have a great holiday season, Limey.

    • Thank you Ahab.

      Yeah, the baby thing is a little comic. Maybe I’ll do a longer cut that includes a dramatic birth scene, complete with a splattering of ketchup.
