"Crap! There's no way my car can make it. Gonna have to see it another way, dammit...
I'm really sore about not being able to make it. Like Butthead said, " This sucks more than anything has ever sucked before!" I guess I'll…"
"Also consider that if you are cropping in on an image, it effectively changes the crop factor on your lens, I guess that's obvious, and the point, even. APS-sized sensors are usually 1.5 or 1.6 crop factors from a normal lens already, so say a…"
Still like Fred better, but what an amazing production! Absolutely beautiful, and how the film looks...incomprehensible. INCOMPREHENSIBLE. But that's a beautiful woman for you...
"Showtimes, Ron? Specifically, Atlanta? Any ideas how to find out when and where? I tried searching, couldn't turn it up. I have a friend in ATL that I could stay with, and drag to the theatre with me. I hope theatres pack out, if it does well…"
" It has been many years since I ran any foam. I'm no expert, maybe someone who does this more often will give better suggestions. I have had issues with much, much higher humidity than 50%, more like 90%! I had to run the A/C [ it was…"
"Canons are good about not overheating, Nikons on the other hand...unless they have worked it out in the last few years, but I wouldn't risk finding out the hard way. I guess it depends on how much you would like to spend on a Canon, you…"
"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?…"
"Oscar was the first thing I thought the first time I saw it. Disappointing, but not surprising, give it to someone less deserving instead. Maybe it will go to a super-talented supercomputer/ human hybrid abomination. And then…"
"I know that Nick sometimes uses a flocking gun, I don't know if that would work on silicone, he will probably chime in on that. On puppet heads, I have used latex as 'glue' to attach overlapping rows of fur, starting at…"
"I believe that they are talking about a beam splitter, deschaud. The glass is directly in front of the camera's lens, at a 45 degree angle to the lens, the camera sees through the glass to the set/puppet, and also sees the refection in the…"
"heh-heh! I just saw this tonight too, linked from No Film School! The fact that it is 720p in h264 is a big time deal breaker for me, but hopefully this kind of thinking will continue to develop and give new life to old Super 8mm cameras. I remember…"

First of all this book has a lot of great info, two thumbs up to the authors.My question is I see something called maxi-plast rubber and Plastazote what are these two items? Since the book is from England, maybe it is something they only have…Continue
Hi all, I'm new on here and just getting into animation. Got my interest from my 9 year old who makes little Lego movies. I'm more interested in claymation and other forms of stop motion. I've been playing around with some Newplast but having…Continue
Hey all,I'm working on a new short film called Uncle Antlers, which, while not primarily stop-motion like my past films (https://vimeo.com/11362592), contains elements of it and I'm animating it traditionally…Continue
On Thursday night we had the "Best of Festival" screening and awards ceremony for a film festival that I did a stop animation for. My film "Percipient" was selected for the Best of Fest screening and nominated for a pile of awards. I ended up…Continue
