Hey! I'm Natalie.

I live in Seattle and am graduating from the University of Washington with a BFA in Photomedia. I got on this website to connect with the stop-motion animators of the world since I feel pretty alone at my college. I don't know anyone really that is a stop-motion animator! SAD :( Anywho, I hope to get a MFA in animation in the future. I love to learn knew things and am incredibly passionate about animation and it's complexity. It's been really great connecting with everyone on here, feel free to follow me on Instagram @lighteningboltnatalie . LET'S BE FRIENDS!

"Neodymium magnets should do the trick! They are also useful for other things such as replacing faces/heads etc."

"The magnets in the feet might work if they are strong magnets. One drawback is that, as the feet get close to the metal floor, they will want to snap down onto the floor.   I've seen magnets in use in the UK, and what they did there was…"

"If the magnets are strong enough, this should do the trick... Wish you luck! Just be careful so the feet won't twist around their own vertical axis when you are touching the puppets. This is the kind of thing we don't notice during…"

"You da best! I will totally use this technique in the future, but since I'm trying to avoid post-production editing the best that I can, I won't be using it this time.  Thanks a lot, and boy do I love the pictures you include! "

"Oy I know. I'll do tie-downs for my next film I promise! I actually found a solution; I bought a magnetic sheet of steel and cut it all up, put it in places that I'll be animating my characters. There's magnets at the bottoms of their…"

"No tie-downs... May the gods of stop motion protect you, child!  If the putty doesn't work (probably won't, because of the height of the puppets) you can try other types of adhesive, such as crazy glue and hot glue. Hobby glue can be…"

"Some other things that might help: Pre-planning everything. X-sheets exist for a reason. Recording the audio in advance and animating on top of that. Using cuts to prevent unnecessary animation. It's easier to animate brief shots rather than…"

"I think the animator of Sanpomichi is based in Seattle. You can probably try contacting her on Twitter or elsewhere and see if she can connect you with people. G'luck on your short film."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Natalie Grammer's discussion 20 Day Filming Stop-Motion...Is it possible?
"I think time spent doing some careful planning will be essential. This means a schedule of exactly which shots are being done on which day, plus all the details necessary to enable that shot to go ahead, so notes on set, props, characters etc. Then…"

"Sometimes I do one long shot, 12 seconds or more, sometimes 2 shots of 6 or 7 seconds each, in one day.  And I'm shooting 24 or 25 fps.  So it's hard work, but possible.  Other days, I have a really difficult shot, and 4…"

"If you really can't fit tiedowns - which would save you time animating and make it much easier - the alternative is a support rig, that you will have to erase in post-production.  It's what you would use if the puppet had to jump or…"

Hi Natalie! I'm sorry I didn't see the friend request until just now.

How is your project coming along?

Ah no worries! Just trying to make animation friends!

My project is going fairly well. I am almost done making the puppets and hopefully set building will be in the very near future
