online resources for the stop motion animation community since 1999
This was a script written by a first grader for a contest; getting the movie made was the prize.
Haha, that was great! Love the moose puppet.
Great puppets, great set, excellent animation! Really nice work, very impressed!
Thanks! It was great to get back to some pure animation after a couple years of just doing the occasional stopmo effect for live action projects...
Way good! What a cool prize for a kid to see their story be brought to life like that.
how long did this take you, roughly?
If I recall correctly, animation took maybe 40-50 hrs spread over a week. Set construction and puppet-building were spread out over a few months on and off, so I have no idea how long those really took.
