Landing Gear and Camera Moves-

Hey Guys,

We are Still workin hard every day over here.......Like most everything in stop mo....things took WAY longer than we thought so........I failed for my first week to make my quota....sukkks

Here is a Big hand cranked camera move for this posts shot .......... it was FAIRLY succesfull...........Some stop mo friends let us play with a vertical and in and out hand crank that allowed us the best control I have had the pleasure to use in my hand cranked career

I think I have been totally spoiled by the LAIKA motion control rigs they have up there....Pure perfection is what I want in my home garage work....but its just not possible....with the multi axis controls..and the human eye-hand so on....

the performance of the hand bugs me a bit too but....for the most part it should work for the film...

Not too bad though....I had 5 or 6 weeks straight coming in over quota...so missing one week doesn't bug me too much....

.......it ended up taking a whole week of late nights to just carve out the lines for the over head shot and the sequence to come......not all of it is clay carving so shel busted out the dremel to carve the lines in the hard back table surfaces...while i hit the clay hard....
.....after the lines were carved....she had to re attach the landing gear to Fleas ship
.....since at this point in the film the ships are back together for the most part and on their uprights....
We had lots of little puppet work to be done-painting- broken fingers-....Fleas antanna broke and needed repairs...dober's helmut needed some animateable straps....
Shel also pumped out a new armature and flea cast for the rest of the film

.....Shes hoping its the last one for the film....I hope so too!!

I have a shot coming up that I am VERY excited to do...And I will begin crankin away on it this coming week.....this next one could be a real REEL piece if I don't screw it up......fingers crossed.....

In personal FUN factor news-

I went to see a film with the family this weekend and got to watch the preview of Paranorman on the BIG screen with the whole family

.....How cool was that!!!!! it looked fantastic and I have like 8 shots in the trailer which is awesome....

I gave shel on my right and Aedon on the left big elbows everytime one of my shots played......

How freakin cool.....DREAM stuff.

Trick Of the week-

shel and me went trapeezin last week...

I think the camera move looks really good, but if you want to use motion control you might be able ask someone fer some help.
Do you know Dick Kaneshiro? He's got mad skills with motion control, here's his website:

Just a suggestion, but I think the camera move is working really well.

Trapeze-ing, wooow! So adventurous. :)
