Beyond the Mask in 30 Seconds

I need your help! My brothers and I put together this short video for a Beyond the Mask contest, and the entry with the most views by December 19 wins! I need you to watch and please share it with all your friends! (oh, by the way, it doesn't have to be just your friends!) ;)

I'm asking you to help make our dream of winning the prize a reality!

Many thanks and merry Christmas!

In Christ,

Sorry, guys... I didn't watch it in time. I liked it, though; I still haven't seen the original movie, but I hope to. I know this is probably a silly question, but are the voices of the characters y'all's voices? If so, who was who?
Did y'all win?
I've never done stop-motion, but my nephew does it a lot. From what I've heard, it takes a lot of time.

Merry Christmas!

Hi Jessica!

I'm glad you liked it! It was fun (but rather difficult) to make.

No question is a silly one! :) Yes, all the voices were done by our family.
My brother Aidan was William Reynolds (the one with the black hair), I was Charlotte Holloway (the only lady) , my brother Jordan was Charles Kemp (the one with the wig), and my Dad was Ben Franklin (the one who said "Follow the wires") and the one who said "He did it".

Unfortunately, we didn't win. Ours was posted later than I intended, so we didn't get as many views as I wanted. But it was still fun to make! (we were the only ones who had it trimed down to the very second and some others were a few seconds over based on the rules, but no big deal!)

It does take a long time. We kept it going pretty fast though, about 45 minutes of stop motion for 3 seconds of film. (including setup)

We actually filmed all of this in a small walk-in closet! Talk about tight spaces, though! Only two of us were in at time, so that helped. Can't imagine trying to cram more than that! The reason we chose the closet was because it had artificial lighting, so we wouldn't have to worry about the sun moving around. :)

Merry Christmas to you too!!
