Adam Taylor replied to Evan DeRushie's discussion Birdlime - short film
"You got so much character into that bird.  I am interested in hearing your process of creating such a distinct character with a simplified design and no dialogue.  I know it is something we all try to do, and I'd love to hear your…"

"Thanks for sharing, Dawn.  This is some really good information.  I am interested in what you did to market and distribute the series after you had it funded and created.  Can you share some of your experience on that end with us?"

Adam Taylor replied to Kevin Stratton's discussion Animation Workflow
"It is often helpful at first to work on just the core body of the character until you have a handle on that, then add the legs on the next pass, then arms on the next until you are comfortable doing all of it together.  The more practice and…"

Adam Taylor replied to Roo Nelo's discussion Possible camera issue causing misaligned frames?
"I find that it helps to keep the auto toggle on and set your camera to not turn off while you are away.  I think the issue comes from the mirror inside the camera but I am not sure exactly."

Creating a character ... dealing with the end

Hi everyone!  I had an interesting experience today and wanted to see if this is something other creators have felt as well.  I have created a group of characters and their world and have lived inside that world for the last five years.  I finished animating the proof of concept - exciting! - but now have to wait to see where it goes from here.  Now the puppets are in boxes, the set is taken down, the lights are put away... it honestly felt like parting ways with a dear friend and hit me hard…See More
