Before you see it, here is a little explanation:
This is a book trailer for a brand new book, being released in January. You can read more about it at PilgrimPrinciples.com. The author, Lacy Clark Ellman, of ASacredJourney.net, is a good friend and collaborator (she’s done some design work for this site, among other things) . When she asked for our help with this trailer, we got pretty excited. Dan began story-boarding, doing complicated math, and dreaming up the stop-motion masterpiece you’ll get to see soon.
About the stop-motion math:
The video you’re about to see is literally hundreds of pictures, glued together to make a video. It’s called stop-motion. Some precise calculations were necessary to make sure we actually took enough pictures to make a video. When I say “complicated math”, I’m referring to multiplication and division, which is lots more math than I normally like to include in a day.
