Howdy all -

I've been animating for over 25 years now, but I've just completed and posted my first behind-the-scenes video.  It is a VERY stupid two minutes.  Hope you enjoy it!

I'm dying, here. That is fantastic! Favorite line so far: "now secure the walls, and bump the camera".

Lovely stuff. I particularly like the idea of the animated actors' union....

'To change your own world, just look up from your electronic device!' Thanks for the reminder!

Brilliant stuff!  See, I knew there was a reason I didn't work with clay puppets, it's that that darned union!  

i love this very much, and wil show it to next weeks stop motion class- for a student its really useful , short- AND funny. Many thanks.

Love your work, Randy!

Thanks guys!  I'm terribly amused that a stop-mo class will see this.  Thanks John!

What is that special sauce? :-)

The special sauce is something that is very difficult to create.  I have to climb four different mountains in Peru to obtain the secret ingredients, then spend months carefully combining them to avoid explosive repercussions.  For color, I create my own dyes by pulverizing sacred Hershey bars, then blending them with giraffe shavings and cow pies to produce the perfect tint for......     ah heck - it's just melted clay.  But in the video, in case youngsters happen to watch it, I didn't want to suggest melting clay.  It's messy, smelly and very dangerous - like having a hot pan full of plastic french fry grease.    

Haha! Sounds great!
