Marble Track 3 Construction

This is my first stop motion video. The characters in the video have a project in mind, but I am not sure how exactly to get there, much less how to make an interesting story out of it. They just finished the first segment of marble track.I've got a long way to go, but it's been fun to build so far!At the time I post this, the video has no audio, and is made up of four clips which you can view in sequence here…See More
