    It was a blast to produce, from story boarding, to photo shoots, to animating.

    The EM-5 was a great companion, and the tilting screen really comes in handy when using a tripod.

    Hope you enjoy it!

    Couldn't agree more. Thanks for sharing!

    Arvin, any notes you can provide on how you did that, or resources you can point us at, would be great.

    The present.
    Really great...

    In the sequence where you are walking, one of the cuts looked a lot like Church Street in Burlington at one point... yes?

    My wife and I were married in Ira Allen Chapel on the campus of the University of Vermont, Burlington Vermont... we are both graduates. Date was May 1st, 1 Million BC. We still take a camp at Colchester Point every year during the summer...

    Congratulations! Nice job too....

    Thanks guys!

    I think the biggest challenge was planning and storyboarding what order things were photographed in and making sure the transitions weren't distracting.

    The paper planes were only shot once so to get them to fold and unfold without creases I just reversed the frames.

    Each Polaroid was printed out and shot on the notebook, then these frames were imported into premiere cs6. Did some post processing in Photoshop for color balance and exposure. Tweaking the timing of each frame was important to get certain things to happen at the same time.
