I am very new to stop motion, although I have done a bit 2d animation. I have experience with directing and DOPing documentary and fiction film(shorter and longer) with festival/broadcast credits and…Continue

Adding some green screen

"I was wondering if there is a general consensus regarding the use -or not - of a green screen. Since I am a beginner I was thinking that by animating elements separately I would have more control in case of a retake, change, etc. on the other hand I…"

"Is the "extra soft" the one you mean? If yes that's good because it comes in bundles."

"The exterior shots of the cinema are all 1:6 scale.  There isn't much more of the set than what you can see. For that 90th Birthday Ray Harryhausen tribute that the shot is from, I didn't need any wider shots of the street, so I…"

"Sorry for multiple posts but there isn't an option to edit my post after some time has passed. Nick I saw your buildup puppet tutorial on youtube, where you are using aluminium foot blocks. I guess it is easy to make with just a dremel/proxxon,…"

"Let me ask few things about the armature as well. the first thing is the ball diameter. Is there a recommended/ preferred size? I am currently making one with M3 rods and 6mm balls. But it feels too small for a 12 inch / 30 cm puppet. Problem is…"

"Ok. So I’ve read some of your previous comments. It seems that it is easier to find stuff already made for the 1/6 scale. So big though. I am thinking about the sets that also need to be big!"

Yiorgos replied to Yiorgos's discussion Set design materials and model cars
"I couldn’t t stop laughing when I saw the producers’ trick many years ago. So clever. I see many people like you and the Stan Winston course I am watching, that prefer the 1:6 scale over 1:8 or 1:9. Do you find it much easier to move the…"

"Ah, I think I actually shot the fence and character against green screen for that title shot.  I did need to make the house a little bigger than it would really be if it was shot at the same time.  I did do some mixed scale shots later in…"

Yiorgos replied to Yiorgos's discussion Set design materials and model cars
"“In the pre-title shot, the puppet, sign, and fence are 1:6, but the house behind is 1:24 scale.” How did you manage to have the 1/24 model so close to the 1-6 model and having it look bigger!? i see your point though. I guess with…"

StopmoNick replied to Yiorgos's discussion Set design materials and model cars
"I've made 1:24 scale sets in order to use 1:24 model cars, and get a wider view than I could do in my small studio with my usual 1:6 scale.  At the big scale I could fit in about a house and a half, but in 1:24 I could have  whole…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Yiorgos's discussion Set design materials and model cars
"That's about right. It assumes six seconds per session, so some shots might be a lot quicker, but some might take a lot longer. I had to do two passes for a shot with foreground and background figures, so that one took 2 days for about 8…"

Yiorgos replied to Yiorgos's discussion Set design materials and model cars
"“6 secs a day is a good estimate for an average,” So around 50 days-2 months for a 5 minute short. Is that in ones or twos like drawn animation? And by day, are we talking about roughly an 8 hour day?"
