Haven't seen any updates recently about getting access going for the old SMA Message Board archive.  I really miss it, and need some of the information in it.  Just sayin'.Continue

Health Hazards in Stop Motion Construction

I want to start a thread on health hazards and how to minimize or eliminate them.  I have not seen much discussion of this very important (if unsexy) subject, although I might be wrong on this. Continue

New Head with Urethane Foam Layer Finished

Posted on August 21, 2012 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

I have been working on a new head, built on the principles Nick Hilligoss showed in his wonderful videos.  It isn't for animation, but for the head of a staff for a class "Speaking Scepter" -- only the child who holds the scepter can speak.  I used a balsa wood core, with eye sockets drilled out, also ear, eyebrow, mouth, nose and neck holes which were filled with epoxy putty so the balsa wouldn't break.  Afterwards I covered the head, except for the eye sockets, in a thin layer of epoxy…

Puppet Head

Posted on July 25, 2012 at 6:00pm 1 Comment

Even though I don't have any latex, I went ahead and experimented with making a puppet head armature.  It has a core of balsa wood, with twisted 20ga wires for lips, nose, ears and eyebrows (epoxied in), two 16ga wires set into an epoxy putty plug in the neck and covered in a thin layer of epoxy putty.  The thing is quite light, and I am hoping the epoxy plugs and covering will overcome any problems with the balsa being too soft to stand up to the stress from bending the wire while…

"Eat At Joe's"

Posted on July 8, 2012 at 11:00am 0 Comments

This is a test-of-concept and test-of-techniques experiment using mostly recycled materials (cardboard from boxes, a plastic bag for the windows, etc.) to construct the environment.  I still have a LOT to do on it, like paint the mortar lines and brick shadows, make interiors for the apartment on the second floor…

Puppet and storyboard for HOTPANTS

Posted on July 2, 2012 at 2:54pm 0 Comments

Hot pants got you didn't it?  Well, that is my word for "short shorts" (get it?).  I have been casting about for a subject which would be appropriate for a 15 second clip, and finally came up with one I like.  The idea is for an advertisement for my animation studio (I have  thought of stealing Nick's "Humongous Studios" or maybe "Acme Studios"), that is if I ever manage to get it off the ground.

The clip will begin with a man ("Joe") walking back and forth in front of his restaurant,…

Hi Martin -

Sorry our Skype call got cut short (blasted machines!) but, keep me posted on developments with the class and I'm definitely interested!

I was surprised to find that I don't seem to have your email address but, here's mine - wobblytripod@yahoo.com

Ron,

I just saw your comment.  My email address is animateecuador@hotmmail.com, for the project, and my main email is mshellabarger@hotmail.com.

The connection here is very flakey, we are using a neighbor's router and it is VERY slow.

I will definitely keep you informed of the progress of the project, and when we get the stopmo section together, I will hit you up!

Martin
