Hey guys,

My names Thomas and I'm a sixth scale collector and artist.  You can see some of my work at www.facebook.com/sculptgeek or www.instagram.com/sculptgeek  I'm here because I'm interested in doing quick but informative stop motion videos about art.  I'd like to build a single puppet for these simple scenes.  Luckily I'm familiar with a number of sculpting, molding, and casting techniques that will help me ease into stop motion.  I'm mostly out of my depth when it comes to ball/socket armatures and the filming process.  I'm currently watching the Chiodo brothers lessons on the stan winston school website.  Hoping to interact with you guys and learn a lot while here.

Hello!. My name is Tab and i am very happy to be part of this great community of fellow stop motion enthusiasts.

I have been experimenting in stop motion for a few years. mostly in 16mm film and a Bolex camera. although I have been a huge fan of Ray H. and stop motion in general i never really had the time to indulge myself in doing my own films. i am in a serious band and have been committed to doing that for a number of years. of course music is very time consuming and left me with little room to indulge my other passion of stop motion. I am just now getting into the digital camera and computer aspect. hopefully i can learn some things here and perhaps make a friend or two.

Hi

My name's Pete, I've just joined up.

I've been interested in making stopmotion for 10+ years.

I'm an amateur so have to fit it in around my day-job (I'm an Engineer.) I try to make pretty much everything myself, so it's a very, very slow progress (I guess you all appreciate that). As for style, I'd like to think it's my own, but I have loads of influences too many to list. 

Beyond stopmotion I'm interested in all cinema, but have a particular penchant for very early European cinema.

That's about it really.

Regards.

Pete
