A Little Game of Carcasonne

Over Christmas, while I was back home, I played a game of Carcasonne with my brothers. (If you're not familiar with Carcasonne, it's a tile-laying game where you lay out fields and roads and cities and staff them with people in order to score points.) Just for fun, I set up my camera and took a picture of each turn, then strung them together into a stop-motion animation. (I learned a few things about my video editor, Kdenlive, in the process, and I'm quite impressed with its capabilities.)

I've wanted to do something like this for years (I remember trying it back in my late teens), but I didn't really have the video editing chops to make it work until recently. Hope you enjoy it! A hui hou!
