A Brief History of Beer!

So the day has finally come! One of our big projects this semester was creating our own short films and I decided to make a stop-motion film about the history of beer! I used a small chalkboard in my kitchen and a Canon Rebel to shoot it all. It’s a little clunky but I’m really proud of it as far as first efforts go, especially when it comes to my eerily accurate drawing of a pharaoh. I hope you all enjoy it and learn a thing or two!

    That was an awesome video. It was accurate and informative and I liked the stop-motion technique you used because it made the video have a fun cartoon feel. It was like Schoolhouse Rock! with beer.
