Hi friends,Life keeps getting in the way of my animation, but I suppose that's allowed more time to think about improving my methods along the way. From what I know, tie down methods is the way to go for animating a puppet but I have never yet tried it myself. For my forthcoming animation I have planned on repeating what I did prior, which was putting rare earth magnets in the puppets shoe/foot and a large metal sheet under the set surface. As you can suspect, walking was very limited (puppet…Continue

Started by Red Spiral Productions in YOUR STOPMO FILM PROJECT on Thursday.
Hi, I am working on a documentary about stop motion animation for a college project. This project will be pitched to PBS. I want to show the history of stop motion up until now. I was wondering if anyone knows of any classic stop motion films that now belong in the public domain? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!Thanks, AustinContinue
Hey, so remember when I talked about my film idea "AMNESIA"? Well I scrapped the script. It's gone. It's dead.

It's about a kid named Nathan who visits his uncle, who runs a restaurant that sells sliders. Nathan tries to pitch the idea of adding breakfast sliders to the menu to his…Continue

Hey everyone. I came up with an idea for a short claymation. It's plot is not entirely original, but it's still a project that I want to commit to. It's called "Amnesia", I still don't have a full idea for the plot, but I have a basic idea. I'll post more updates along overtime.

6-19-21 (147) - I bought Dragonframe 4 $338 (USD) with tax. Got a free upgraded license and a link to Dragonframe 5
6-28-21 (156) - Dragonframe controller arrives, much smaller than expected which is a good thing. I doubt I'll even use it since my current set up has my monitors away from the stage.
6-28-21 (156) - Since you do not need a set for the Jam, I will start working on the puppets first. I'm so lazy that I am reusing an old practice sculpt from last year. All I need to…Continue
H21-918 is the working title for the production. I came up with the real title as soon as I had my idea but revealing it now would be a spoiler.
H21 for Halloween 2021 and 918 for the deadline of September 18th but I'll be finished long before that date. (this is a lie)
Today is my self imposed deadline to finish a costume commission. I am not finished, and I decided to do more of the project then I intended and everything I am doing is taking twice as…Continue
