Study Hal: Bonus! Behind The Scenes

Hey friends! Today I’m bringing you something a little different: a behind-the-scenes vlog about how I make the Study Hal videos! The video is a crash course in my process, including how I made the Hal puppet, how I come up with ideas, and timelapse footage of the animation process.

Let me tell you first-hand, there is a huge amount of work that goes into stop-motion videos. As short and silly as Study Hal is, each video takes hours to prep for, shoot, and edit. From characters and props to audio, almost everything in these videos is crafted by someone behind the screen. In the case of Study Hal, that person is me!

I hope you find the video entertaining and that you’re staying well. I look forward to sharing the next Study Hal video with you on Tuesday!
