Daybreak uses Stop Motion Animation

Stop-motion animation is a sequence of pictures that are photographed one frame at a time. In between each still photo a physical object in the scene is moved slightly and photographed once again. When played back rapidly, an illusion of movement is created.

Recently this technique was utilized by Daybreak TV to produce a short video celebrating the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, also called Corpus Christi. For centuries a Eucharistic procession has accompanied the feast of Corpus Christi. At the end of Mass the Bishop or priest will display the Blessed Sacrament in a monstrance and walk down the street followed by parishioners, as they sing and recite prayers. This procession with the Eucharist shows that God is present in the world and that we, as a faith community journey together toward heaven.

In order to portray this prayerful procession using Stop- motion animation, sets needed to be created. Ashley Czarnota, a videographer and editor at Daybreak TV, took on this project. Using cardboard boxes, construction paper and a hot glue gun, she built a neighborhood street, the interior of a church complete with people in the pews, an outdoor altar, folks for the procession and a monstrance. Over 600 still pictures were taken to create this one minute video, which was edited by using Photoshop and a Premiere Pro editing system.

Our Lady of Fatima

The world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima was sculpted by José Thedim in 1947. In March of 2016 the Virgin Statue of Fatima began two-year journey across America, commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima.

This statue which has traveled to more than 100 countries made its way to the Diocese of Buffalo, New York in December 2016. Daybreak TV Productions team member Ashley Czarnota, spent some time at Corpus Christi Church, in front of the statue.

“When I heard this Pilgrim Virgin Statue was coming to Buffalo, I was excited to document the experience. I remember the church being filled with pilgrims praying before Our Lady. It was very moving,” confesses Ashley.

“As I thought about recording this event, I came upon an editing technique called Hyperlapse video and felt it would be an interesting way to showcase the Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady. Hyperlapse video is a technique where a series of still photos are taken and edited together in order to create a tracking shot in a time-lapse sequence. It took me one full day to photograph the statue, taking over 300 still photos. The editing was tedious and took about 2 days, but I was very happy with the result!”  This video can be seen on the Daybreak YouTube Channel.

Ordination 2017

An Ordination is a sacrament in which a man becomes a deacon, priest, or bishop. The Ordination Mass is rich in meaning and history. On June 3, 2017 in the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Downton Buffalo, NY, four men were ordained into the priesthood by Bishop Richard J. Malone.

Daybreak was there with three cameras covering this joyous occasion. If you are interested in viewing a highlight video of this ceremony, please subscribe to the Daybreak YouTube page. The video should be up by the end of the month. In the meantime check out a few pre-ordination video pieces!
