An old colleague of mine has been writing a series of animation acting tips on the skwigly website.  He's had a lot of experience as professional stopmotion animator and now teaches at a top UK university.  If you haven't seen them they're full of top advice and worth a read.

Here's a link

Hey Lewis, I wasn't sure where to post it either! I did a quick check to see if anyone had already posted but didn't see yours, sorry about that.  I guess it helps spread the word, belt and braces and all that!

No Problems, more the merry
