Time-lapse BTS shots

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Oct 11, 2019. 2 Replies

Any tips on doing one of those shots where the puppets move in real time and the animator flickers around? I have never tried one before, and they are so great to watch.I assume it is done as a…Continue

The Legend of Jan Tregeagle movie poster

Here's a movie poster for my film - still a long way off completion - designed for an exhibition we are doing this coming weekend.…Continue

Wrought iron gates

Started this discussion. Last reply by Maureen Z Mar 6, 2019. 8 Replies

Here's a pic of some gates I have just finished for my film. They are about 200mm high and made using thin aluminium bent rather like full-size wrought iron, and glued with superglue. Frames are in…Continue

Eyebrow paddles

I wonder if I can tap the collected SMA brains on the subject of eyebrow paddles, which I am not doing too successfully just now.I have used T shaped paddles with a little bit of epoxy putty on the…Continue

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Mark Francombe's discussion Canon EOS + Nikon dragonframe combo... Im talking about the "flickering"
"I had a lot of problems with using tungsten lights and flicker, but have not had any since going over to LEDs. I think it may have been the high current draw of the tungsten lights being affected by things like the washing machine switching on and…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Count Croc's discussion Weathering aluminum foil
"This may not help, but I decided to try to make some small helmets using a scaled down version of the Cosplay armour that is all over YouTube. So I used 2mm EVA foam, which glued well with contact adhesive. I coated it with several layers of PVA and…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Darcy Phillips's discussion working to existing audio track
"Don't entirely dismiss the remote keypad. I have the wireless version, and it is brilliant for when you are animating one side of the camera and the monitor is the other. I use it all the time!"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Gavin A's discussion Best Editing Software
"Would be interested to hear more about how you get on, as I have just installed Resolve, and am struggling through the learning process. It looks like an all-in-one package, with effects, sound and colour. Are you using the effects in Fusion, and if…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Sandro's discussion Dragonframe and Sony Cameras
"The Sony camera is a mirrorless one, and the only Canon mirrorless cameras currently supported by Dragonframe, last time I looked, were the EOS R and RS at around £1500 for the body only.  The advantage of a mirrorless camera is that the…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dylan Henderson's discussion Character Proof of Concept
"Nice video!  Dunno if this might help with the cape, but I made one using two thin layers of cloth and dressmaking interfacing to glue them together. This has the effect of stiffening it up but still allowing creases and folds. I put wire round…"

"Sometimes simple is better! Looks very good."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Tatu P's discussion All tender things
"Wow! That's looking lovely. Fantastic animation. One to look forward to! Glad I was able to be of some help. How did you do the movement of the waves?"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Count Croc's discussion I need suggestions for my new film
"What you need is this wonderful book: Ideas for the animated short , by Sullivan, Alexander, Mintz and Besen. It is inspirational.  Bobby Yeah by Robert Morgan was also made in a sequential way. I think it is available on YouTube. Quite a…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to John A (filmmaker)'s discussion Dreams and Nightmares
"I would add to that. Stop motion requires such precise organisation, and often live action filmmakers seem to come across as positively sloppy by comparison. Even worse with theatre, where nothing gets finalised until the last rehearsal. But for…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Jet Zhang's discussion Sculpture material of puppet hands
"Well, practise on a simple mould first. Here's what you need to do, assuming it is a hand or similar that requires a two part mould. First you surround the sculpt with soft clay up to the level of halfway. I like to use water clay (which does…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Aj Shenefelt's discussion What to use for set background?
"I am having great results using a chromakey blue background, stretched on a frame. This can be lit to look like a blue sky. Bought a 3m X 2m piece for about £25."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Jet Zhang's discussion Sculpture material of puppet hands
"Sculpey firm might be better to work with than super Sculpey.  If you are making a silicon mould for silicon pieces, then use a harder silicone for the mould and make sure to use release agent. But why not use plaster for the mould? Hard…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Jet Zhang's discussion Sculpture material of puppet hands
"Don't use plasticine, as it contains sulphur and will inhibit the silicone. But Chavant is good, and Monster clay too."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Aj Shenefelt's discussion What to use for set background?
"Super cheap would be to use an old bed sheet, stretched on a frame."
