So beautiful! On top of the wonderful animation / direction / lighting ... that camera rig is such a beast! I believe it came from Dick Kaneshiro right? Ethan's got skills!

By the video is posted in a wider format than usual and for some people it might get cut off (on my screen it overlaps the sidebar on the right)

You can expand your borders to allow for more space if you choose to. If you like your page exactly the way it is then skip the rest of this post!

Here's how:

Go to your dashboard > layout > edit html and then search for "#main"

it should lead you to a small wall of text that has outer-wrapper, main-wrapper, and sidebar-wrapper. These are the borders for your entire page / main posting area / sidebar (links and such). You can mess with the "width" dimensions to get your page looking the way you want it.

The "padding" in the outer-wrapper area is the border BETWEEN your layout blocks i.e. between your actual text post and the links on the right.

Hope that helps!

Woops spotted a typo:

By the way the video is posted... *

Also forgot to mention that you use Ctrl+F to use the find function when searching for "#main". For any random reader who isn't familiar with it!

Thx for sharing!

Awsome man! Great lighting and animation! What's that puppet made of? Looks like the face and hands are clay and the rest is foam??


Ethan said...

Hey Fish-

The puppet is a brass ball-joint armature with foam build up and a hand-sewn costume over that. The face and hands are cast foam latex. Thanks for looking!
