"Wow, that's a very cool way of doing it, I don't have chicken wire ATM, but seem to have everything else, but by the sound of things I should be able to find something similar.
Obviously this is all good to drill through?
"What tools do you have to work with?
You can bend thin ply in one direction, attaching it to cut out profiles made from particle board or thicker ply. But if you want a compound curve, you can use chicken wire to form the shape. You still start with…"

"Hi Ellie. I would expect that if you're not a student you probably couldn't enter it into a student category. I think you answered your own question though - if you don't think it's good enough for the non-student categories then…"
Hi everyone,I have a quick question about entering animation festivals. I've just completed my second stop-motion film and I'm thinking about entering it into some festivals. As this is only my second film (and my first attempt at using plasticine!) I feel like it would be more suited to the 'Student Film' category that a lot of the festivals have, but I'm not actually an animation student affiliated with any particular college or university. This seems like a really silly question but does anyone know if it's possible to enter a film into this kind of category if you're not technically a student??Or is it better to just accept that if your film is not good enough to be entered into a professional category it's maybe just not good enough to be entered into a festival? ;)Thank you!EllieSee More
Hi guys,I've searched through the set making posts and cant seem to find anything about this, so I'm gonna go ahead... I've just started working on a stop motion, currently in the pre-production stages.The first scene I will be shooting is of a character sitting on top of a hill, getting up and walking down the hill.I've raked my brains for ideas, but can't seem to work out how I would make the hill and be able to use tie-downs.In basics, I think I need some sort of material which will allow me to bend to make the hill shape, and also be strong enough to drill through for tie-downs.Hope you're all able to understand this, and can help me out here, thanks very much,AdamSee More
