My stopmotion project
Before I moved from
prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /Wuhan to Shenzhen, I was working in a stop motion project.
prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /
I watched some amazing shorts made with this technique and I fell in love with this kind of animation. I was so excited with the idea of making a film like this, that I created a story, drew the story board and I started making the sets immediately.
I thought that later it would be easy to find somebody in that city that would like to join me in this project. But I was wrong.
Wuhan there isn’t a community of artists or people that really love animation or filmmaking, so I couldn’t find anybody to help me.
Because stop motion require long time and a lot of patient, I knew that I couldn’t finish all by myself, so I decided to pack all set and materials in boxes and postpone this project for the future when I would move to another city and I could find people that like this kind of animation.
Anyway here are some pictures of the set and the puppet I was sculpting
These were suppose to be the metallic armature of the puppets
It looks scary! I sculpted the head and hands with Super sculpy. Then I was suppose to bake them and when they would be hard as stones make a mold with a special kind of
white hard silicon. When that would be ready I would use the mold to fill it with a soft skin color silicone that looks just like human skin. The problem was that when I put the parts in the oven I forgot to turn off the grill and I burned all the pieces. It was horrible. I will try again next time.
