I recently discovered a school in Japan that teaches the art of creating stop motion animation.
Since I dont understand Japanese very well and the English version of the web site is a rough translation through Excite - I can only offer a fun video made by the school. It shows the creation of a full body ball and socket armature and the techniques involved. If you live near Japan it may be something worth looking into a little deeper. The armature and final puppet looks very well made. All hand created on machines as well as soldered joints and carved wood by Mr. Takashi Komae.
