My nephew has 8 years old and making first stop- motion animation with Lego, perhaps somebody know animation school for children in Chicago near the Oak Park, IL area or in the city?. I think it would be good to know other animation technique:)
Test for ship propulsion Mat. The 3D will represent 60% of the film. It is a personal choice and a practical choice. The purist will stop motion disappointed. My knowledge is very limited 3d. But still I managed to get a result that pleases me. In fact, my biggest challenge for this project and achieve almost tell a story without words. For that, I’m not going to…Continue

Or do people make an extreme that is still moldable and only animate it within a small range and insert another and do the same till they have…Continue
