online resources for the stop motion animation community since 1999
Daniel Alderson (Fantastic Mr. Fox, ParaNorman, The Boxtrolls), takes viewers behind the scenes to show what he does as a stop motion animator.
Absolutely wonderful. Thanks for sharing that.!
Laika is hardcore. Cool stuff.
Very cool video! Thank you for sharing, great insights. I like the Boxtroll live action reference in the car park. ;)
Guys, how do they remove this support rig? Masking frame by frame?
They shoot a clean plate before and/or after the shot is animated. Basically reshooting the shot without the puppet and rig. If there is a camera move, that entire camera move needs to be reshot. The post production team uses this plate to 'erase' the rigging. Nuke I hear is very popular. After Effects works too. There are probably more tricks they use that I don't know about since I haven't done much rig removal outside of AE.
