Mother's Days : Armature to Life

Over the course of approximately 37 hours across one weekend I made my first piece of stop motion animation. Equipment was borrowed so I had the time restrain of friday night until monday morning until the equipment had to be returned. I really wanted to make this as a kind of DVD Extra, and I had to do it at this stage of the project as any further in the armature would be inside my silicon puppet.

The studio needed blacking out so the windows wouldn't affect my lighting set-up

I started filming part way through my process, the video will be edited into a time lapse clip and uploaded into my next post.

I love how the onion skinning looked whilst making this.

  3. Well done Nat, you certainly know how you want this to work out and it reminds me a bit of my younger days with Mechano! only I did not do time-lapses to show how I built things. Well done and concentrate on this project to produce your usual high standard ok.
