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…"
"I didn't work on it, considered it but couldn't afford the time. I'm not at all surprised not to see my home town on the list, or anywhere I could drive to without an amphibious vehicle and 3 months to spare. ( and a hella lotta…"
"Thousands of miles and a border between the closest one and myself unfortunately. I really want to see it on a huge screen though. I think Ron said it might be available on DVD or download at some point but I'm not sure when. Can't wait. I…"
"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 there, I have this very specific problem with my medieval set, and was wondering if you guys had any ideas;I'm building quite a massive 1:9 scale medieval street, with cobblestones. I found a great way to create the stones using gluegun, but, I…Continue
Hi everyone! I'd like to share with you a project I'm working on for my third year of university. I'm making stop motion puppets of Nausicaa and Kai from the japanese animation 'Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind'. Puppet fabrication for stop…Continue
Before I go into my question, I want to say that I admire traditional stop motion and the people who spend years and years on bringing there creations to life.Question 1. I want to know if it is possible to create puppets, sets, props in real life…Continue
It was a beautiful summer day at the Muddy River, so an idea sparked, which was based on the works of Steve Archer (God Bless his soul), using a mix of animation and live-action. It was made with Dragon-Frame for the animation and Final Cut Pro for…Continue
