A tiny bit more stop-motion

I’ve been working on the drawn part of my film for the last couple of weeks without much time in the stop-motion studio. Got in there today to do some parts that I really wanted to add at the beginning. Think I got a really nice image to put on my business card.shadow

 

Exhibition at LTM

The opening at the London Transport Museum went really well, it was so nice to see everyone’s work exhibited there and we all appreciated having the special screening and watch them all again. Nice work everybody!

Back to the Trip project…

Recent News…

I’ve been in the studio shooting stop-motion as much as possible in the run up to the rough-cut deadline. I’ve shot all the stop-motion parts and it’s time to devote all my time to the 2D part. After that I will do some more stop-motion, because there are some things I still wanted to try for the beginning/titles and for fun, but so far I’ve got what I need. I managed to reshoot the tattoo scene and the opening scene and I think they work a lot better and I enjoyed using the lighting and reflectors I borrowed from the loans store the “kino flow diva light” 🙂

Check out these new production stills:

Also you can follow me on twitter and instagram, that’s fun because I’ve been posting pictures directly from the set…

Getting Trip into position last Friday. We had a good week of shooting, was nice to be reiminded how much I love stop-motion, it can be so much fun when you get into the flow of it. Hopefully will be able to iron out some of the problems I encountered this week. Looking forward to getting back in my black box tomorrow morning!

Leg break…

So, this happened right at the beginning of the week…but it actually was very fortunate because I was accepting the fact I had accidentally made the right leg a little longer than the left, so I could file it down and make sure the threaded ball joint screwed all the way on this time. Once I fixed him up, off we went starting with the end scene. I can’t tell you how much I love this armature! It’s so brilliant to animate with, makes a huge difference, it has weight and brings personality and flexibility beyond what I anticipated. Totally worth the money. And so, the following day…
