Trying to keep things simple. For me, this means cheap and not too much investment in time. I want to focus more on animation for this Jam and not props, sets and puppets.
These rockets are made from materials I found in my workshop scrapbox: PVC pipe (from a plumbing repair), wood dowels, Apoxie Sculpt modeling compound and some cardstock. Paint is rough, but may work for background objects. Build took an afternoon; painting 2-3 hours spread out over several days to allow coats to dry.
Rock on! Rockets:-)
awesome simple designs.. I like it.. and that was my aim to try stay more focussed on the animation than the puppets and sets, but I seem to have fallen now to the puppet fabrication and set building side.. we'll see what happens...
Best laid plans of mice and men.... I'm also yielding. Animation completed thus far is fairly simplistic - simply moving the rockets through space. Doing more post production than I intended since it is so much quicker than doing everything in camera in one pass.
Nice speedy job - it works - looks familiar and earthbased
