taking one frame at a time since 1999

Hey, its been a long time since I posted anything in this forum, but just wanted to share my latest project. 

Its a short film produced to try out some new techniques I've been developing for lip syncing stop motion. You can check out the film here:

https://vimeo.com/292694858

The armature for the main character billy was entirely 3d printed. Just because I wanted to see if it was possible. The head had a bunch of servos in that controlled the lips, so that the lip sync could be pre programmed. I'll put a few pictures below and there's a bunch more info, including how i built my homemade moco rig on my instagram @Billy_Whiskers and at billywhiskers.co.uk

Thanks!

James
