First Armature

Started by Mark Blann in ARMATURES yesterday. 0 Replies

Working on my first armature. About 8 inches tall. Using M2x10mm screws with locknuts to hold ball and socket joints together. I then use J-B Weld around lock nuts to keep them from turning and also on leg and elbow joints to only have one bendable joint. These things are a lot of work! I still need to figure out the feet tie-downs and add hands and then will be starting to work on a head. Wish me luck!Continue

Joe Clokey 1961 - 2018

Started by Anthony Scott in CHAT BOARD. Last reply by Greyguy on Sunday. 2 Replies

Above: At San Diego Comic Con 2015: Joe Clokey, Harry Walton, Sage Clokey, Anthony ScottJoseph Clokey, affectionately known as "Gumby's Little Brother," passed away unexpectedly last month at the age of 56, due to a cardiac arrest. Joe was President of Premavision/ Clokey Productions, which produced the widely popular Gumby television series and the Davey and Goliath show. The legendary clayboy Gumby, originally created by Joe's parents Art and Ruth Clokey, has been a pop icon worldwide for more than 60 years. Under Joe's leadership, it has continued to enjoy cult-status renown among children and adults alike. In addition to remastering the Gumby library and promoting Gumby through museum exhibits, festivals, TV shows, speaking engagements, parades, and new products and productions, Joe served as story consultant for Gumby Dharma, the Emmy award winning documentary about Gumby and Art Clokey. He led the writing and production of Davey and Goliath's Snowboard Christmas, a-one hour special. Joe's passion for Gumby and stop motion animation, combined with his charisma, eloquence and encyclopedic knowledge, served him well as he championed the family legacy. Compassion, optimism, integrity, indefatigable energy, joy, flexibility, imagination and an adventurous spirit, defined both Joe and Gumby. Filmmakingscripting, shooting and editingwas Joe's creative love. He had deep interests in movies and music, hiking and healthy living, tennis and traveling. He was open to all aspects of life, from politics to poetry, from surfing to spirituality. For many people, he was not only a seeker, but a beacon of light. Joe's smile lit up the world. He lived each day to the fullest, always serving and giving generously to others. Joe Clokey was an impassioned advocate for ecology and social justice, and his concerns made their way into Gumby and Davey productions.…Continue

Stop Motion dslr

Started by Alex in CAMERA & STAGE. Last reply by Mark Blann on Friday. 13 Replies

Hi guys, I am a complete newbie to stop motion however my partner has been doing it for years but she has never been able to afford her own dslr (she has always borrowed one from uni). So for Christmas this year I wanted to buy her one but I have absolutely no idea what kind of dslr is good for stop motion. She uses the program stop motion pro so I want to get a camera that is compatible with that program. From the research I've done apparently Canon is better than Nikon and I've been looking at the Canon EOS 1300D but I also heard the "Rebel" line isn't all that good for stop motion, so should I not buy a new 1300D but instead maybe a second hand Canon that will do a better job ? ( I heard the 50D is apparently very good) My budget is about $800 Australian dollars. Any help would be really appreciated. Continue
