The day before you want to try this, you'll want to freeze your block of ice (with the action figure embedded inside!). A large block of ice can take a while to freeze so make sure you allow yourself plenty of time.
Start by building up your set! We've used two tiles for the backdrop (with paper behind) and a tray to catch all of the water to melt.
Once you're all set, add your lighting! Remember the timelapse may take a couple of hours so if you're using battery powered lights, make sure the batteries are charged. Add an empty container as a stand in for the next step
Set the cameras up
Place the cameras securely on the two tripods, set them both to manual focus and on to manual.
Set your exposure according to the lighting. If you're not sure how to do this manually, check our basic tutorials.
When you're setting to two cameras up, try and get two different angles, we find a close up and a wide shot works really well.
Add your intervalometers
You'll need an intervalometer for each camera. We've used Triggertrap Timelapse Pro so that we can set a delay on one camera so that the timelapse on our second camera starts a little bit after the first.
You'll want to set a fairly significant interval between shots for a timelapse like this, we find 30 seconds works nicely.
