Hey all - I was wondering how you guys go about building a ground for say a forest, or an outdoor setting. Do you lay down plaster then paint over it? Do you use clay? What approach is best? Thank…Continue
Hello everyone, I'm currently trying to practice stop motion and improve my skill. I have a few questions: When animating a walk, is it essential to have a rigging, or are tie downs sufficient enough…Continue
Hello all, I'm having trouble figuring out which approach to take to lip sync my clay armature. I'm considering making multiple mouths with hardened clay and swapping them out of my Plasticine clay…Continue
"Nicely done! Thank you for the advice and example of the different mouth applications. I'm animating a skull and was wondering how it would look without any lips or facial movements but it looked alright in your trailer, which I totally…"

"Hi Graham. The simple version that was taught to me is that it is about your spacing and timing really. The more evenly spaced your increments are the less life like it appears. Easing in and out helps a lot. Have you tried…"
"I have just been going through this process for my own script, and once i got the sequences numbered i started work on the storyboard with an artist who specialises in them. He drew about 350 sketches. Then I put them all in a timeline, guessing at…"
It's a good question and I think I can help because I tried a few dead ends before finding a good way for me to work. It depends on what your characters are. Reading your script, it seems like just normal human…"
"Thank you so much for your in depth analysis and advice. I think you're right, there's always room for improvement and my script is far from perfect. I think more visual transparency is needed (numbered, more visual description, less…"
"Hi Graham. Just read your script and I have a few comments to add. I agree that it has a lot of potential and could be a very interesting film.
My first comment is to suggest you organise the script layout. You need to break the whole thing down…"
"Hey Graham, I read your script, and I agree with most of what Rebecca said. I liked it. It needs tweaking here and there maybe, theres always room for improvement. I agreed that the narrators voice can be intrusive. I…"
"I've been practicing making puppets recently but yes this is my first time attempting it. That's awesome! I'm glad you're familiar with the music and that you understand the tone.|I will! Thank you!!!!"
"I agree with Evan. Tie-downs are a great way to go. The rig often ends up getting in the way and distracting from the animation. The rule of thumb is that if it is possible to do without a rig, never use a rig. If you must…"
"I would recommend practising animation with tie-downs, not rigging. There's lot of reasons to use rigging for animation- such as heavy characters or small feet. But it's an extra level of complication that you should avoid if you're…"
"I'm new to this as well, but I would think a rig would help a lot. I'm sure some of the more experienced members will chime in on this subject. When looking at behind the scenes videos on YouTube, I've seen quite a few rigs being used…"
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on this email( email@example.com ) for the full details, Have a nice day
Thanks God bless. Mrs Abiola.
