In February a coworker told me about the “100 Day Project”. Since she was in grad school in pursuing a self defined major, VR, she was doing 100 days of VR projects. After going to the100dayproject.org and learning more about the project I decided to join.
I've spent some time thinking about what I would do. I decided on doing 100 days of stop motion. It is something that I can do while on the go with some free stop motion and editing apps on my phone. I'll be sharing my progress in my Instagram stories. I’m thinking of doing weekly recap posts on Instagram as well as 30ish day recaps on here.
Here are the first 7 videos that I have made during this challenge. I’ve already missed 2 days. Thankfully I’m more concerned with completing 100 days than finishing within a definite time frame. I’m being realistic that there are going to be days where I forget, do not have access to elements to make something worthwhile as well as sometimes life happens and I won’t be able to some days. What’s most important is that I’m creating consistently. I’m looking forward to seeing my progress throughout this project.
