Bringing Imagination to Realization Since 1979

Posted on January 20, 2014 at 8:30pm 7 Comments

Hello to all the good folks out there!

One crazy man and his dream. I would like to keep track all of my progress in one place and so will be adding to this blog as I go. Please scroll down and check it out:) Newest additions at the bottom.  I have, over the last year, been learning some of the magic and mystique of an art form that first inspired me as a kid watching Ray Harryhausen's skeleton warriors. I am doing this because I love it which has been attracting others who think the same way.

I use TEDCO Studios as a frame of mind, a form of initial focus point for the energy this adventure has been generating.  

I want to thank every person who posts, shares, helps and encourages others. I would not be able to have accomplished what I have in the last months learning character creation and stop motion and lighting without your help. I am truly grateful. 

I am not trying to be presumptuous or egotistical, just building my dream. 

Now that I have learned a few more etiquette guidelines for this site I will start posting the things I have been working on in a blog to try to keep things in order. Clearly visible in the picture of one of my workstations, you can see that I work my fingers to the bone in everything I do trying to learn as much as possible over the last few months from all you incredibly…

Thanks for the compliment. I've been a stopmo fan for approximately 38 years, so I guess you accumulate a little knowledge over time, even if I don't actually practice the art very often. Good luck on your projects! (BTW, my avatar is a she! She's Graziella, the star of my last production...which was also the first bit of animation I've done in 30 years.)

Puppets with five fingers

Started by bigbossross in NEWBIE CORNER. Last reply by StopmoNick on Wednesday. 2 Replies

I am planning a 1:6 scale foam latex puppet, and I have a wire armature made with five thin fingers. Very few puppets I see have more than 4 fingers, which imagine is due to a technical limitation.  I am wondering how hard it would be to align the…Continue
