silicone on hair and costumes

Started Dec 30, 2016 0 Replies

Has anyone experience of using silicone on hair and costumes, like they did for KUBO? Any tips? Anyone from LAIKA able to share your technique?I tried brushing some coloured Platsil gel 10 onto some…Continue

First test for DIY moco rig

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Sep 30, 2016. 16 Replies

At long last I have finally got my moco rig working, thanks to a busy weekend with Roos Mattaar. It's a 6 axis rig with a crane arm and a 1.5m track. Connecting everything up has been quite a…Continue

DSLR picture settings for stopmo

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Jul 5, 2016. 4 Replies

What picture settings do you use for stopmo? By this I mean the adjustments that can be made in the camera's menu, for Sharpness, Contrast, Saturation and Colour. Filmmakers all seem to have their…Continue

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Sean S's discussion New to silicone puppets - eyelids?
"Hi Sean This video that I did before Christmas had blinks done in post: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0LT60lJ628&t=9s I mostly only did the one eye as the other was in deep shadow. It was done in Photoshop."

Paradise Surprise

"Fun stuff, and it suddenly went in an unexpected direction, which I liked. Some little things - the cloud was stationary, then moved a bit quickly, then stopped, as if you got bored of animating it. Perhaps have a skyscape moving very slowly…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Iulian Demetrescu's discussion advice for motion blur in stop motion
"Is it possible for someone to describe what one would actually do with ReelSmart MB to create blur in a clip? I sort of get the principle, that you want to blur the moving objects to minimise stutter, and keep the static background nice and crisp.…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to bigbossross's discussion Silicone skins and armature placement in a puppet
"It's not easy! I've had a few where everything worked perfectly except the paddles or the chin piece were close up against the skin surface. My failure was impatience in not putting enough layers into the mould first. Other factors are:…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Sean S's discussion New to silicone puppets - eyelids?
"And don't forget the option of doing them in post. A lot less fiddly!"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Twin Tales's discussion Lighting feedback
"Not sure if the shot is too dark. This is where it all becomes a matter of judgment. If you want a seedy, late-night bar feel, then having the background quite dim is fine. The lighting on the figure is essentially separate, different in colour as…"
Sunday
Simon Tytherleigh replied to Twin Tales's discussion Lighting feedback
"Hi there. Atmosphere definitely looks good. I can get the bar feel. Not much top light on his hair, and one might expect bar lighting to come from overhead. But there is something very important about film lighting that you need to pay attention to.…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Erik Stickley's discussion Making a mould for big nosed sculpts
"When you say it's a nose hole, do you mean there is a nose beyond it, or is it for fitting a separately cast nose onto? If the nose is attached then you will need to take a scalpel to the underside as Nick suggested.  Don't apologize…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to L Carter's discussion Liquid Latex for Build-Up Puppet Heads
"I am in the UK, and bought my last lot off eBay. The label says 'Artpothecary (Jacobson's Chemicals)' on it. In the past I have used stuff from Tiranti's and others, and have not noticed much difference between them. This is for…"

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…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to L Carter's discussion Liquid Latex for Build-Up Puppet Heads
"Liquid latex or dipping latex is what you need. I get mine from an art store via eBay. "

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Twin Tales's discussion Question about lighting
"If the lights get hot, they are definitely not LEDs. LEDs do not rely on a glowing filament, instead there is some sort of interaction between dissimilar chemical compounds that is about 80% efficient in light emission."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Twin Tales's discussion Question about lighting
"Cheapest and easiest way to go is to buy a string of LED lights, as sold for Christmas and…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Tim Ryan's discussion Attaching separite pieces to complex silicone model...
"Ah, quite big. Which gives you more room. If you make two separate creatures, then your crossover isn't a problem, but the challenge becomes how to link them effectively. Perhaps making a small bulb on the end of the 'tube' and a…"
