    Hey there,

    I’m new to these Forums and Stop Motion in general.
    Here to get some of your opinions, on a small test.

    Basically i recently developed an interest in Stop Motion Animation, so i thought i’d try my hand at a Clay Animation.
    It’s very short, being my first attempt i was mainly trying to get a bit of basic experience and feedback, before undertaking a larger project.
    It took about 2 weeks from start to finish. And there's a little over 200 Photo's used in this clip.

    You can view it here;

    Hit me up on YouTube if you like it, or have something to say in general.
    Much appreciated.

    i dont want to be the first to look at it... New poster, and comes in with a link...

    Edit: nvm its pretty cool. but i think it could have a btter story even though its 10 seconds. very good technical aspects, and creativity, but alas i dont see the direction.

    Thanks for embedding it, i had no idea how to do that.

    Yes, the actual video wasn't allowed to be longer than 10 seconds.
    The 11 seconds of credits i now realize was a bit steep. It didn't need to be that long at all, and i didn't even pay attention to how long it actually was.

    I wouldn't have included credits at all, except i wanted to include the Chroma Key'd footage and Disintergration effect test, to see how they would look.

    Cheers for all the feedback so far.

    Cool vid, Adam Jones. :mamoru:

    I agree that the intro/feature ratio is a bit off.

    That's was pretty sick! But then again I'm a HUGE fan of Adam Jones and this looks a lot like his work.
