Hello everyone,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-6WL4txVlw
Here is a stop-motion animation using felt characters I made for a brazilian singer(Robson Fonseca) that was just realeased on the web. The animation starts at 0:22. What do you think? Feedback?

Hope you like it.

Nice!

Very nice work!!

I noticed that there was very little "flutter" on the felt fuzz... how did you accomplish that?

Thanks guys!

Chris, to decrease the amount of flutter on the felt, (which can be considerable) I animated at 12fps and did as little manipulation as possible to get as much expression as I could. By being careful to only handle the puppet in the same points each time I was able to diminish flutter. Working with felt puppets can be a double edged sword: although they are easier to make than latex, animating them and keeping it clean and with not too much flutter, can be a hassle.

bravo!!!

This is a music video, I guess, but it is more!  It is a short film that tells a complete story, economically and with clear emotions.  (Surprising how the little black beads as eyes can be made to look in different directions.)  I like the use of felt for the characters, and they are animated well. The sets are good too, and there are some great camera angles which are very effective.  Very well put together!

Thanks Nick, that is a great compliment coming from you!
