Character Performance

I had wanted my puppet to walk into the space, falling under a spotlight, and notice the camera but unfortunately it turned out the armature was not strong enough to hold the clay I had covered it with. I guess you always have to use ball and socket when working with plasticine. Change of plan. I quickly built a box and made a pint glass for him to hold. He would now be propped up against a bar and would talk from there. I still managed to get movement out of the upper body to convey his character. Turned out ok and there were some nice bits but a few things still not quite right. Will post on YouTube soon.

hey Joe, this all looks pretty impressive.
Came across an article of yours in Imagine magazine and the Sans Frontieres group sounds brilliant. Hope this Stop-motion lip synch went well, by the looks of it you had a great set-up.
I've linked you on my website hope you don't mind.
