I see. I thought he will be in the new film, because his dance is really nice! :) Thank you for your kind reply, and good luck for your new project!!

Thank you all. :)

Haruko - this was just a test. I am working on a new short, but it doesn't include Mr. Zombie here.

Impressive! All movement was so natural and humorous, I love it! Is this a part of your film project, if I may ask you here?

Beautiful work!

If you get so natural feeling in the movements in direct animation you don't need reference at all.

The puppet is really alive! although it's a dead man!

Thanks.

Actually, I didn't use any.  It's good that you bring up reference, though, because it's something I really should use more. Over the years I've gotten in a bad habit of just improvising without a real end goal in mind, and when I do that, I end up with puppets that just kinda flop around like you see here.

Wonder animation!

Did you use a real video as reference?

Thanks guys

Roos, the blur was made using a variation of Peter Montgomery's technique, with he posted about in The Handbook, here: http://www.stopmotionanimation.com/page/megamotion-the-motion-blur-...

It involves using the "Timewarp" function in After Effects -- I set the Speed of the clip to playback at 100% then clicked "enable motion blur." Next, I set the box to "Manual" mode, so that I could change the shutter angle to: 275.04. -- then I pulled the shutter samples to 11. After that, I used a little bit of "Directional Blur" on an animated mask to enhance certain parts that I wanted to be extra blurry.

Very nice animation! Motion blur works well, what method did you use to achieve the effect? Is the character part of a bigger project?
