Where can I find good green screen backgrounds? Would I be better off making a composite myself? Continue

Everything I sculpt looks like a duck....

I finally got my first job in a film. I've been tasked with making a monster, and I keep messing up the head. Every sculpt I do ends up looking like a duck. I want a long, thin, sleek type of face…Continue

"Hey, As I was perusing the site and saw your question, I thought I'd get Nick (my camera guy) to add to the discussion:   If what you mean is where can I find a background after I have it keyed out. There is lots of stock photos for…"

"I use a chroma key green Moulton (brushed cotton) fabric, a brushed cotton, that comes in 3 metre wide rolls.  I buy it by the metre from a theatrical supplier.  (In Australia, so name of supplier is not that useful to you, but you can get…"

"Depending on where you're located there's several workable options for green/blue screen backgrounds. If you're in the US I'd take a look at B&H Photo Video, Adorama, or Filmtools. They all carry a variety of background…"

StopmoNick replied to Count Croc's discussion Furred Creatures
"For a couple of bigger puppets I was able to stick fur fabric over the main part of the body.  But it didn't look good for skinnier parts like the limbs, it made them like fat sausages or those fur mufflers, 3 times the diameter of the…"

"It's really more of a mandible type deal rather than a jaw."

My newest monster

Hey guys! I just thought some of you would be interested in what I’m working on. This is my newest monster, which was originally made for a Halloween short. My new project is going to be based on the scene from A New Hope with the monster chess sequence. It was what really began my love for stop motion. There’s neat videos on YouTube on how they remade the puppets for the new films. (I could talk about this for hours). For whatever reason, I find this scene to be really interesting. Anyway, I…See More

"Sometimes it's a bit like that problem of trying not to think about something, that only makes you think about it some more. When I am sculpting I try to concentrate on the essence of what I want it to be, the feel of what it might be like to…"

StopmoNick replied to Count Croc's discussion Everything I sculpt looks like a duck....
"A duck monster, that would be different... ok, maybe not right for this film. The good thing about a crocodile type face (from a practical standpoint) is the mouth opening goes right back to where the jaw hinges, with no cheeks, so even if cast in a…"

StopmoNick replied to Count Croc's discussion New Build-up Method?
"Yes, I do build up a layer of latex to form a skin.  It will also restrict movement a little bit, since it is more solid than the soft foam underneath.  It works fine for hands, because the fingers are thin and it's ok for the latex…"
