From Christopher Smith of the Tulsa World:

Christopher tells us:

We shot this for a food page story about what you can do with leftover Halloween candy.

In today’s online story about the video, Christopher writes:

For stop-motion animation to work, there must be continuity and consistency in the set and background and with the character’s movements. This is how the magic happens.

Miniscule movements are photographed one after the next and are edited together to make a video and to create the illusion of movement.

Tulsa World Scene Writer Nicole Marshall Middleton and I made between 10 and 12 movements of our character per second to make Sweet Transformations II: Graveyard Groove. And we shot more than 600 frames.
