Hey Guys!

I know its been a long time....but I always remember taking my first stopmo steps here.

I thought I would share one of my test unit shots from KUBO with you guys.

When you first join a film they usually throw you in a test unit for 3 weeks to let you feel the puppets out and get in character with who ever you will be animating.

This is one of my very first tests with the Monkey character from KUBO.

How exciting Justin! Any hints at what it might be about?

Awesome! thanks again for sharing!!!

The hip sway in the walk test is so fluid, I think I missed it the first few times. I had to watch it several times in order to see how so subtle a movement can make "mechanical" natural. I hope that makes sense. I also hope it doesn't sound like I'm kissing butt, lol 

Also, the persistence of vision "swoosh" of the sword blade in the run/attack video...was that just bits of paper added to the blade to create that effect? Oops! Ok, (upon further reviewing) I totally missed the pipe's shadow AND the wire, my bad! 

I'm looking forward to your new project. Full steam ahead!

Dennis
