"Thanks for the info on the Japanese cork and pin method.   My favorite way for tie downs is to use a piece of threaded rod and attach it to the puppets foot, insert the rod into the hole in the stage and use a knurled nut or wing nut from…"

"Hello, Adam,That information is what I wanted to know most. Thank you so much.For decades in Japan, the method of sticking a pin on the ground of a cork from the top of a puppet's foot has been used. Compared to tie-downs, the weakness is that…"

"What system of tie-downs is most used in Japan? "

Adam Taylor replied to Shigeru Okada's discussion fixing the puppet with screws
"You basically have the correct method by using a foot template.  Sometimes you can make a metal foot template but it is the same concept.   I have been a Laika for a short time and the other studios in Portland and as far as I can…"

"Thank you for your advice.Certainly, if the animator does the rehearsal well, the hole position can be known before the animation. There may be exceptions, but that's the basic method."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Shigeru Okada's discussion fixing the puppet with screws
"You can work out the length of the puppet's stride, the time duration of the shot and where you want the starting and end points to be. If you rehearse the shot with key positions you can then mark and drill your hold down holes."

"Thank you so much for sharing the video. It's a very unique and interesting way.As you say, there is no problem even if the position of the hole moves a few millimeters."

Shigeru Okada replied to Shigeru Okada's discussion fixing the puppet with screws
"Thanks for your comment.It's also a smart way to make holes before animating.I've never heard of the slot and a T shaped tiedown you wrote. Can you tell me more about them?"
Jul 10
Shigeru Okada replied to Shigeru Okada's discussion fixing the puppet with screws
"Thanks for your comment.But I want to know how the animator knows the exact position the screw goes in.For example, if puppet's foot touches the ground when the puppet walks, how do animator know where is the position the screw goes in? Is…"

StopmoNick replied to Shigeru Okada's discussion fixing the puppet with screws
"I drill the holes before I animate.  Then I have to make the puppet foot land in the right spot.  I use a slot in the foot (and a T shaped tiedown), so it does not have to be as accurate as it does with a threaded hole in the foot."
Jul 10
Simon Tytherleigh replied to Shigeru Okada's discussion fixing the puppet with screws
"If you know what position the screw goes in, then you can just drill straight through the baseboard and fasten it from underneath. I use long M3 or M4 bolts with a wing nut to hold down the foot. If you can see the holes in shot after the puppet has…"

fixing the puppet with screws

Hello,I'm a stop motion animator based in Japan.I would like to know how to make a screw hole accurately according to the position where I want the puppet to stand.Now I use a paper cut in the shape of a foot. I put it under the puppet's foot. After removing the puppet, I drill a hole at the position of the hole of paper. There is very little information in Japan because the method of fixing the puppet with screws is not used very often. I would like to know what method is used in other…See More
