Hi guys
I've just put up two claymation videos to YouTube:

I'm only just starting out, so I would appropriate any feedback/ ideas you have for what I can work on for future videos.

Thanks so much!

Good fun, good storytelling, I enjoyed it!  Come on, do the next episode of Spacederg!

As for things to improve - Maybe you could tie the puppets down somehow so they don't slide about.  It wasn't a major thing though.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the feedback!

I did try to put magnets on their feet, but I think a fair bit of the issue was me a) bumping the set and camera and b) picking up my clay models to smooth down the clay.

I'm not sure if I just need another method of doing that - or just a bit more practise! Hm!

Thanks!

I'm a big fan of sci-fi comedy in general, and I like where this is going. I love your imagination and sense of humor, and the alligator's voice cracks me up. That's going to be stuck in my brain now for weeks. I also liked how you used illustrations on paper for the character's thoughts. Very creative and entertaining all around. 

I'd say, just keep making more.
