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!
Puppet Putty is formulated by clay animator Don Carlson. Properties include colors that do not bleed on your hands, a matte finish, cleans up with water, is very light weight, firm, non-greasy and has a silky texture.
Hi! I was wondering if anyone could tell me or point me in the direction of a tutorial for animating a matte for rig removal in Adobe Premiere or After Effects? Here's a quickie little test I did of my puppet just to dip my feet into how his rig…Continue
Anybody have any idea why my live view screen looks like this? It is like the camera only wants to show a single color channel in live view. The actual capture looks fine...but if I have to animate using this crappy looking single-channel pass that…Continue
Hello fellow stop motion-ers!I have managed to teach myself enough to make a few stop motions, but I still don't quite understand what type of lighting/bulbs to use to prevent the subtle flickering throughout an animation? I want to be able to…Continue
I have three heads which I are going to have moulds made of them, and then are going to be slush cast. I want to put little wooden blocks inside the head with holes for the eyes to sit in, wire and epoxy for the nose and epoxy putty teeth with a…Continue
Hi All!After a few long months of clearing some freelance work I am now finally in the position to fit in some commissioned stop-motion work. I have space available to produce puppets of all kinds. A full service can be offered from character design…Continue
