"Abracadabra" Setup

On set preparing to start shooting my first real stop motion short film in the stop motion film cage!  Took almost 2 hours to get the stage and lighting right.  Shooting still images on a mini DV camera, frames captured in Dragon Stop Motion.  Ideally, I would be shooting stills on a digital SLR.

Remember this?

 It's fun to see the same setup from 3 different points of view!
