"Looks like it is an app designed for drawn animation. But presumably you can import an image sequence and then erase bits to reveal a clean plate below. That the basic principle of rig removal."

"Might also give foamed silicone a look: reduces the weight and you can have a silicone skin.  Has anyone tried this?  Smooth-On introduced this product a few years back and I had been thinking of giving it a try at one point..."

A director must speak the language of an actor, editor, camera operator, sound engineer and so on so as to successfully accomplish the making of the film. Therefore, directors must have technical, creative, interpersonal and leadership skills so as to manage all the responsibilities of his job and that are the financial and the creative success of a film.Continue

Paranorman Eyes

Started by Paul in GENERAL PUPPET MAKING. Last reply by Bharoto Yekti on Tuesday. 37 Replies

Hi All,Anybody got any info about how Paranormans Eyes work and what theyre made of?Ive watched all the featurettes I can watch and while it shows the eyes in plenty of them Im still not sure of the full workings of them. It looks like the eyelids stay in there and are hinged maybe but I cant make out how the eyeballs stay in there? it also says that the eyeballs are moved around with an exacto knife, I would have thought this would scratch the paint on the eyeballs?If anyone knows anything about them Id love to know too!!!Thanks,PaulContinue

New Biped

Started by Dave Hettmer in ARMATURES Dec 2. 0 Replies

Haven't posted in quite a while.  Some of my work was under wraps until the films were released, and while some might be interested in the local theater work I've done (like the Shrek growing Pinocchio nose or Little Shop stage #4 Audrey that went from 7' to 10' high), none of that was stopmo related. Here's an armature I just finished.  6" tall, 5/32" and 1/8" ball joints.Continue

One Million Years BC Triceratops vs Ceratosaur resin model kit for sale on eBay

Started by Strider in SWAP MEET. Last reply by Strider Dec 1. 1 Reply

Hey all, another model kit I'm selling. This time around it's from One Million Years BC, the famed faceoff between triceratops and ceratosaur. Sculpted by legendary Joe Laudati, who has done many Harryhausen and similar kits. He loves the genre and it really shows in his very detailed work. Here's the scene from the movie for reference (note this is NOT a picture of the model kit - it does not include a massive background like that, but rather a small base under each dinosaur):If you click the pic above it's a link directly to the eBay page, or click HERE instead if you prefer a text link. Not directly Harryhausen or stopmo related, but I also have an Asian Frankenstein kit up HERE if anyone's interested. Here's a couple of pics of a finished kit- the one I'm selling is unbuilt and unpainted, these are just for reference and inspiration:Continue

Gotterdammerung - Cinemascope

Started by Theo P. Stefanski in YOUR STOPMO FILM PROJECT Nov 28. 0 Replies

I started a kickstarter campaign for my animated short “Gotterdammerung”, which is being shot in Cinemascope, and may very well be the last Cinemascope film made. As recommended, I am spreading the word far and wide. Feel free to donate to the cause if you can, or just share with those who may be interested in your social circle.I am about halfway through with the film, and I hope to complete this project before film processing vanishes. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gotterdammerung/gotterdammerung-classically-animated-in-cinemascopContinue

Just get an error message.Normally I use dragonframe and photoshop. But my laptop died recently.Is there any other app out there where you can use a layerfuntion and erase rigs from still jpegs? Hope anybody can help me. Google refuse./DanielContinue
