My new approach towards combining stopmotion with a video

Hey guys,i came up with this idea of combining contemporary dance,stopmotion and to tell a story at the same time,more like a musical short..

Please suggest me how can i do better..would really love to listen to expert's suggestion :)

Hi.

Nice film. !

My only suggestion; If the lyrics are relevant to the action perhaps you should add English subtitles so more of us can get the full experience.

very well said brother,i would do that from the next time..thanks man

Really lovely video. The dance sequences worked very well, and I like the puppets helping out at the end with a giant screwdriver. And some great atmospheric lighting too. The dance was rather more fluid than the other animated sequences. 

For the story, you might consider making more contrast between the headless puppet, perhaps unable to dance and bumping into things, and the one with the head restored. Also, I did not quite get whether he was trapped inside the box, as suggested by the cardboard base, or was outside of it, because a head rolled towards him. So, make your story really clear and give it some development, I.e. moving from broken, frustration to release, mended. And keep a firm grasp of physical space.

the head rolling scene was divided into two sections,,the first when the main character that is me,i dropped the figure and it's head was broken,,and that past scene was being remembered by the action figure,2nd when the head rolled in and hit his foot,its present,sort of an artistic way to show it,,,as i tried i mean...i tried not to make that part very clear intentionally,

And regarding other advices,thank you so much,will try to work on that,actually the story developed while we were working on it.. :D so yes it could be better
