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…

Update on OMEGA DEVICE.

Been thinking long and hard about the stop motion for Omega Device. And I've come to this. I think the vast amount of shots can be done via the Mo-Motion technique. It's what was used to create the ultra real motion of the Alien in Alien III. I'll do one or two shots in stop motion, but they will be short.

For the longest time, I never understood that. I thought of puppets as inanimate objects being moved exactly as the animator saw fit.

That belief only grew as I became a computer…

Working with Replacements in Animation

As with my last blog post, I am 'asking the question'. I dont know very much about the process of replacement parts in stop motion. I have seen heads with many replacement mouths or even heads. Usually different extreme expressions are made, one of my questions is, do people make as many heads are parts as the frames it takes to get to the expression? 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…

Experiment 005 - Sneaky Mouse

With my Experimet 004, I published my 5th Experiment, with only a guy trying to smash a mouse and then he hits himself. That's only a demostration of my skills in Stop Motion, with some errors in the filming. After that, I only say You enjo it!
