Plywood Pirates (2007)

Stop motion short film

Last updated: 30 December 2021

Directed by Stefan Schomerus

My role: Scripting
Software used: Python, ImageMagick, FrameCycler

I wrote a Python script that parsed image sequence directories, created preview versions of the images using ImageMagick command-line tools, and created AVI files from those preview images using the FrameCycler command-line renderer.

You can watch the short film in German on YouTube:
