"I think I really will go for a dark stop motion look. I've just made an important decision regarding what the setting is for this sequence. I've decided on dark, claustrophobic city streets with long shadows. "

"Sounds to me like an excellent opportunity for some stopmo effects, especially as you mention a dreamworld, where anything goes. You can also use effects and lighting to make the stopmo stuff look as real as possible, so sinister and not lame... Go…"

"I made my first puppet for less then $25. I was 17. I used copper wire for the armature, then sculpted bones directly over the wire using a 2 part epoxy putty called milliput. Hardware putty works too and is cheaper. My first puppet- a Harryhausen…"
