Hey guys, someone posted some Astro-liner films (made for Amusement Park rides-projected inside the craft that moved hydraulically in sync with the films)-from the 1980's on youtube-this one has…Continue
"What I think was happening, was there was a tracking mis-sync each frame, and the flying erase head or some other element in the VCR's play heads stabilized it. So rather than the picture jumping up and down every frame, it stayed stationary…"
"Just seeing this thread for the first time. Wow, I guess a lot of animators were using editing decks like framegrabbers! My first one was a Sony SLV-696 HF with a flying erase head. It was pretty rock-solid, picturewise, but that did not last. It…"
"The 3:25 was when the film started (whoever posted this, hooked a couple of Astro-Liner films together)..I was not the animator, just the monster maker. Another guy made the miniature Jules Verne looking sub the monster is chasing...John Davis did…"
"It was good seeing the sea monster in action, after seeing the odd still photo of it over the years! I don't understand Spanish but that didn't worry me. It did look like pretty low res though, couldn't see the fishy as…"
"Someone posted the Spanish language versions....but at least you can see it...
These were shot on 16mm and made into Super 8 carts that looped...for each rides duration-appx. 3-4 minutes. Not sure what this print is-could be from a Super 8. These…"

"Atlanta is a ways off from me, but I'm SERIOUSLY thinking of making the drive, in my junk car. Hey, it's the BOYS! Can't miss Ron's work in the THEATRE! And let's see, Mark Sullivan, Peter Montgomery, and Paul, and Nick too?…"
Thanks, hair application is can be hard if you dont have the exact visual process in your head. Thats why it's great to have input from fallow fabricators. I have a general idea of how its done, but knowing exactly how it's done, always helps!
Hi folks, If anyone wants to try a 7oz pack of Puppet Putty, send me a message with your P.O. Box or mailing address and I'll just have you pay the shipping. Normally it would be the cost of the clay + shipping, but for the first production run, I…Continue
Hello Guys! Oh by the way! Any of you guys casted Resin Eyes before? I know the basic principal of resin casting! I've done it in the past! I've just never tried it with spherical objects! Any of you guys know how to do it?…Continue
I'd been experimenting with the possibilities of slow motion and how to achieve that slick, ultra slow look in stop motion. And after a while of testing, I decided to make a short film to showcase the effect. It is a spoof of all those fancy perfume…Continue
