Thank you very much, Don. Really I'm not an experienced stop motion animator (I'm mainly cartoonist and musician). I did a lot of little test shots before begin with this proyect. I am working in it from 2 or 3 years ago and I love also clay.

Very interesting your advices about lighting. Now I'm using an halogen as main light and a blue or red for the fill (mainly for get a colorist aspect) and I fight lot time with cam and lights untill get an acceptable lighting

Very nice, man! I love clay. Nothin' else looks like it.

You commented in another thread about models looking better on camera than in real life.

 Lighting can have a lot to do with that... If you use diffused, even TV-style lighting, then that will hide a lot of flaws.You can make this less obvious if you use a gelled light for the fill (as you've done that here). The one thing that clay does not do well with in high defnition is high-contrast, dramatic lighting. If you absolutely must have it and don't have time to clean the faces up on set, you  can get rid of a surprising amount of imperfections with a software median filter in post production. There are plugins designed especially for making faces look better in glamor videos. The median filter is pretty effective, though.

This looks pretty flawless, though. How long have you been animating with clay?
