Any tips on doing one of those shots where the puppets move in real time and the animator flickers around? I have never tried one before, and they are so great to watch.I assume it is done as a…Continue

Here's a pic of some gates I have just finished for my film. They are about 200mm high and made using thin aluminium bent rather like full-size wrought iron, and glued with superglue. Frames are in…Continue

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Aarica North's discussion Lighting for LEGOs
"Oh, that's a really good tip - but only for reasonably cool LEDs! The reason one had to use special gels on film lights was because they got so hot. With LEDs this is not so much of an issue. I save coloured sweet wrappers at Christmas to use…"

"Just a thought. I wonder if the captions could work better if you left out 'clay actor', as we can see that? Concise is generally more punchy, so e.g. "Wendy, being the consummate professional, gladly removed her own head so the…"

"I would think you would light it like anything else, and try to get some variety and depth into the lighting. Use tracing paper to diffuse the light and reduce the shininess. I believe it is also possible to buy some anti-glare spray if it is a real…"

"Good points. It might be OK for things like trees that only bend a little, but doesn't seem from the video that it could be relied on for puppets. Ah well!"

Time-lapse BTS shots

Any tips on doing one of those shots where the puppets move in real time and the animator flickers around? I have never tried one before, and they are so great to watch.I assume it is done as a timelapse with the second camera. What sort of interval do you set? And presumably you have to go through the frames to root out the extra ones when you spent 10 minutes fiddling instead of the usual 5? It seems like there is a lot to do to clean up shots like this. So any crafty hints and tips…See More

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Devin Pingree's discussion Lights (LED's and dimmers)
"Hi Devin I think you will find an LED panel a more useful item. There are quite a lot of them around, and some reviews from DSLR Shooter on YouTube. Because you are using a long exposure, you don't need masses of light and therefore don't…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Devin Pingree's discussion Lights (LED's and dimmers)
"The way LEDs are dimmed is by using a PWM dimmer, which essentially switches the light on and off to reduce the brightness. This happens very fast,too fast for the human eye to notice, but it might affect camera shots especially if done with a fast…"
