Hello, i am Mike :). My wife and I are directing a stop motion horror tragedy film here in florida. We are totally new, to stop animation. We are trying to find other people that know more than us so we can learn. :). I may not know a lot about puppet making, but directing, and cnc manufacturing are my strong points. Speaking of that, I will be making custom CNC manufacturing ball and joint brass and aluminum armatures and donating them to whomever helps me with our project. Be it just e-mail help, thanks :)

I also friended  you on face book ;D
